  1. Doesn't Ari's service in the army allow him to take advantage of the new GI Bill? If so, that would take care of many of his college financial issues.

    I appreciate your direct and eloquent approach to these issues.

    A big fan,

  2. From the article at the first link:

    "meeting later this month intended to draw thousands of men to discuss the dangers of the Internet... A live video-feed will be streamed to six locations"

    I wonder what they'll use to transmit that live stream...

  3. I would SO love to have lunch / dinner with him (Veggie Heaven in Teaneck or New City...since we are both vegan). He is fascinating. Having lived near / worked in Monsey my whole life, I would enjoy picking his brain for a bit on numerous subjects.

    ...throwing it out into the universe to see what happens...
