This is a video done for my friend Jimmy... I think it's very well-produced.

One of my students (I tutor) forwarded this video to me. I was amazed at the intensity of this protest, and its proximity to my home. The location of this video was about halfway between my home and where I work.
For the record, I stand with Israel... and if they can find and root out the source of these rocket attacks and prevent further incidents I believe they have the duty to do so, not just the right.
It is evil to shoot rockets from the midst of civilians then blame those who retaliate appropriately.
There can be no peace where there is so much hatred, and hatred is a disease which spreads like an epidemic.
I have nothing against anyone who has not harmed me or my family, but neither can I have respect for those who distort facts and deny truth.

It's been quite an adjustment, and the job is mentally draining but provides a high level of satisfaction at day's end after completing challenging projects and trying to keep up with my insane multitasker of a boss.
While I've been settling into the job it has morphed a bit to accommodate my needs, and the latest setup seems to be a winner. I get to work on my boss' spiffy Apple Powerbook Pro with an auxilliary monitor so I can use the extra space to drag things over and not have to keep switching from screen to screen on one monitor.
I'm learning new stuff every day, and it never gets boring.
