Halal sex, anyone?

I remember when Shmuley Boteach’s book Kosher Sex came out several years ago. People were fascinated by the very idea of an Hasidic rabbi talking about the forbidden subject — sex — from a religious point of view.

Sex was a good thing (within limits, of course).

I was just thinking about Kosher Sex when I came across a feature in the LA Times about a Muslim sex therapist in Cairo. And she has a TV show.

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
