Since the fall, L.A.’s Unified School District has canceled plans to build 19 new schools and additions because the projected students haven’t materialized. Enrollment is down 7 percent from 2003. The L.A. Times doesn’t even mention a decline or reversal of immigrant flows as a possible cause, blaming only
years of declining birth rates and increasing housing prices that have pushed poor and working-class families out of many gentrified urban Los Angeles neighborhoods.
Hmm. Housing prices haven’t really increased since last fall, have they? But there has been an anti-illegal crackdown (and a decline in construction jobs). Is the LAT so committed to its ‘Latinos are the future’ line that it’s missing a major social and demographic development happening right under its nose?

"This guy knows all the gossip, the ins and outs, the lashon hara of the Orthodox world. He’s an [expert] in... all the inner workings of the Orthodox world." (Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff)

"Ford is a smart guy; he certainly understands Jews. He was trying to interview me but I refused. He's on Facebook and perhaps Twitter. I guess he was an evangelical who converted to Jewism. I don't know whether he's pro or anti-Jew, doesn't really matter, but he writes clearly and persuasively about what Jews are doing, no matter his motive." (Alex Linder)
"After reading your web site, I conclude that you have either (a) accomplished what I never though possible, namely transforming flattery of Jewish vanity from what I had always considered a lowly craft into a rarified art form (and I mean that as a compliment) or (b) concealed from your readership the fact that you are a remarkably devious rascal." (Yggdrasil)
