As you have all probably figured out from my less than subtle hints, the time has come to put on my ranting hat and get back to what I do best: railing about Israeli politics, self-loathing Jews, liberalism, and, of course, the great islamic menace.
I flirted with irreverence with the JZ experience, but it was really more a way for me to get away for a few months and post on topics outside of my MZ norm. Quite frankly, my frustration for what's been going on in Israel developed into full-fledged burnout. One thing I did retain, though, from JZ was the basic black background. It seemed to fit my message at MZ better than the old colors.
So you see, despite my disgust I found myself unable to completely get Israel out of my blood, and after a much-needed 60 day hiatus I can now come back with the vim and vigor you've come to expect from MZ. So here I am, back to make you laugh, rage, and think, while tackling subjects with a perspective that is still, sadly, all too rare.
6/30 UPDATE: Haloscan is now installed, so all the old comments have been restored.
