This class has a few students from South America, who speak Spanish and English. We also have a Romanian dentist. What the call is to these Romanian (non-Jewish) dentists to come to Israel I am not certain. However, when this dentist told me that she has a saying "white teeth, black heart" I made a mental note to avoid Romanian dentists if possible. I'd say my dentists have always had a bit of a different approach.

Apparently, we will cast a paper ballot. At first it sounded quaint but a friend from England pointed out to us that fraud is a lot more difficult with paper ballots than a computerized system. Really with the whole "hanging chad" thing so fresh in our memories I don't feel we have much room to talk about primitive voting systems. I am pretty excited to vote even if I don't quite have it all down. As a neighbor told me: The United States is a large country with only two choices (sorry, Ross Perot) and Israel is a tiny, tiny country with many choices. I suppose that is how it goes.
