.....and who is 'Yackov'??? And will DB get a job as a screenwriter? And can he improve his skill at writing dialogue?
I just realised that 'Yaakov" is Yaakov Menken, with whom I have enjoyed corresponding over the years on other listservs (precursors of blogs). But DB is bracketing together CrossCurrents and Bloghead. DB:I'd keep out of Miriam's way, if I were you.
