A News Roundup!

It's Thursday here in Chavi-land, and both of the bosses are out of the office (and country), so things are quite slow, considering the scanner doesn't work and there's not much paper-pushing to be had. So I thought I would post a couple news stories of interest. Eat it up, folks!

+ Jewish Groups Placed on Security Alert: It would appear that a variety of incidents and threats have caused a U.S. Jewish security group to warn its members to be more aware and on the look out. There have been 7 threats/attacks since mid-February, not to mention that the 40-day mourning period for the Hezbollah leader killed in Syria has ended. Likewise, the Department of Homeland Security has instructed officials to inspect Jewish sites. No rest for the weary?

+ No Tam Tam Crackers for Pesach: This was going to be my year to give them a try, but it looks like there will be no Tam Tams for Chavi during Passover. For the first time in 68 years, the crackers won't be available -- because of oven problems.
