“He.” “She.” “They.” Have you ever given a moment’s thought to your everyday use of these pronouns? It has probably never occurred to you that those words could be misused. Or that doing so could cost you your business or your job – or even your freedom. Journalist Abigail Shrier explains how this happened and why it’s become a major free speech issue.
My arm still aches from surgery last week so I can’t type for very long. But I did want to note Likud/Bibi’s apparent win in the Israeli elections, which will make him the longest serving PM in the Jewish State’s history.
In a funny way, I almost wish that the Blue & White/Gantz party had emerged victorious, because their policies, vis a vis the Arabs who (thanks to the propaganda branch of the KGB) call themselves Palestinians, would be no different than Likud.

About twelve weeks ago I felt a sudden, sharp pain in my right elbow.
A strained muscle, I assumed. Over the next few days, the pain only increased. I told a friend about it.
He said: “You have tennis elbow.”
I said, “The closest I ever got to the game is the tennis match in Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train.”
I made an appointment with a friend who is an Orthopedic surgeon. He examined me, sent me for an X-Ray, and said: “You have tennis elbow.”
I endured physical therapy for a few weeks, but the level and intensity of pain was off the charts .
The injections I received—cortisone, and then my own blood—did not help.
I’m scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning, April 1.
Thus, Seraphic Secret will be off-line until I can use my right arm again.
I am, however, preparing Friday Photos in advance so at least that will go live this coming Friday.
