Jew Without a Gun: 25 Years Ago, the LA Riots

This coming Saturday marks the 25the anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots. Thus, I am republishing my three-part series about the riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys—frequently […]

Jew Without a Gun

I am republishing my three-part series about the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys, frequently armed with heavy weapons, owned the streets. It was a […]

Medical Evidence: Trayvon Martin, Who Looks Like Obama’s Son, Beat Zimmerman Bloody Before Shooting

George Orwell observed that “we have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.” Seraphic Secret will now restate the obvious: 1.

Hollywood is Burning, or: Jew Without Gun

In light of yesterday’s post about Jews and guns and the vigorous, articulate comments from our readers I am republishing my three-part series about the LA Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were caught. We were unarmed. The police were, um, absent, and the bad guys owned the streets. It […]

Hollywood is Burning, Part III: Gauntlet

The torture of Reginald Denny. “We had no orders except to hold our ground and whenever possible to attack—always attack.” All this whips through my mind as I aim our car—I’m already thinking of the Lexus as a tank, a Centurion—towards the exit of the parking garage. A knot of rioters are milling about at […]

Hollywood is Burning, Part II: Get-a-Way

I have to protect my family. In my pocket, as always, a little Swiss Army Knife. “I’ve never yet seen an eyeball who felt that the Swiss Army Knife was not a dangerous weapon.” This charming and somewhat gruesome comment, advice really, was given to me by my Israeli buddy, a grizzled tank commander who, […]

Hollywood is Burning, Part I: Trapped

Not special effects. L.A. burns. Hollywood is burning. Karen and I lock every door in the house, shut tight the windows, we move through the house switching off all the lights. Gazing from our bedroom window, we watch orange flames lick at the darkness, pillars of black smoke climbing into the sky. We can actually […]
