Sino Arabia
Does the idea of the ChiComs and the Wahhabis getting together warm your cockles? Then rejoice! Wannabe nuclear Saudi Arabia is warmly welcoming China's interest in displacing the US as the Saudis' strategic partner and biggest customer. And why not? It worked for the Chinese in Africa, where they are busy demonstrating that unlike Uncle Sam, they have no moral scruples of any kind in dealing with brutal and dangerous regimes. It will work for them in Saudi Arabia as well.

American men staying home longer
What the hell is wrong with these slackers? Fully one-third of Americans aged 22-34 are living with their parents; this is double the rate of 20 years ago. What changed? Are American parents doomed to let as many of their boys live with them into their mid-thirties as Italian families? (85% of Italian men aged 18-35 live with mom and dad). My theory is that perhaps the proportion of men who aren't ready to be independent hasn't changed; the rate at which men leave adolescence has always been somewhat higher than for women. What's changed is that instead of graduating college with a young wife willing to stay home and "be mom", they're graduating college with most of their female peers ambitious for careers and hungry for achievement, not picking up socks. So they go back home. My theory is weak, I admit it. Do you have anything better? I can't believe that the social stigma of living with your parents has declined enough that one-third of guys live with their moms.
Justin goes off to college for a year or two, wastes thousands of dollars of his parents' money, then gets bored and comes home to take up residence in his old room, the same bedroom where he lived when he was in high school. Now he's working 16 hours a week at Kinko's or part time at Starbucks.

His parents are pulling their hair out. "For God's sake, Justin, you're 26 years old. You're not in school. You don't have a career. You don't even have a girlfriend. What's the plan? When are you going to get a life?"

"What's the problem?" Justin asks. "I haven't gotten arrested for anything, I haven't asked you guys for money. Why can't you just chill?"

This phenomenon cuts across all demographics. You'll find it in families both rich and poor; black, white, Asian and Hispanic; urban, suburban and rural. According to the Census Bureau, fully one-third of young men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents -- a roughly 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. No such change has occurred with regard to young women. Why?

My friend and colleague Judy Kleinfeld, a professor at the University of Alaska, has spent many years studying this growing phenomenon. She points out that many young women are living at home nowadays as well. But those young women usually have a definite plan. They're working toward a college degree, or they're saving money to open their own business. And when you come back three or four years later, you'll find that in most cases those young women have achieved their goal, or something like it. They've earned that degree. They've opened their business.

But not the boys. "The girls are driven; the boys have no direction," is the way Kleinfeld summarizes her findings. Kleinfeld is organizing a national Boys Project, with a board composed of leading researchers and writers such as Sandra Stotsky, Michael Thompson and Richard Whitmire, to figure out what's going wrong with boys. The project is only a few weeks old, it has called no news conferences and its Web site ( http://www.boysproject.net ) has just been launched.

Indiana, where midwifery is a felony
Does it make any sense at all that people practicing a craft that existed for thousands of years before modern medicine can go to jail for it? For eight years, becoming a felon ineligible to vote or own a gun? It's a profitable racket when your competition can sic the machinery of the state against you, as one unlucky Indiana midwife has discovered. Absolutely absurd!
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., March 29 — Angela Hendrix-Petry gave birth to her daughter Chloe by candlelight in her bedroom here in the early morning of March 12, with a thunderstorm raging outside and her family and midwife huddled around her.

"It was the most cozy, lovely, lush experience," Ms. Hendrix-Petry said.

According to Indiana law, though, the midwife who assisted Ms. Hendrix-Petry, Mary Helen Ayres, committed a felony punishable by up to eight years in prison. Ms. Ayres was, according to the state, practicing medicine and midwifery without a license.

Doctors, legislators and prosecutors in Indiana and in the nine other states with laws prohibiting midwifery by people other than doctors and nurses say home births supervised by midwives present grave and unacceptable medical risks. Nurse-midwives in Indiana are permitted to deliver babies at home, but most work in hospitals.

Midwives see it differently. They say the ability of women to choose to give birth at home is under assault from a medical establishment dominated by men who, for reasons of money and status, resent a centuries-old tradition that long ago anticipated the concerns of modern feminism.

Chloe Hendrix-Petry's birth has not given rise to criminal charges, but a prosecution against another midwife, Jennifer Williams, is pending in Shelbyville, Ind. It was prompted by the death of a baby named Oliver Meredith that Ms. Williams delivered in June. But she is not charged with causing or contributing to Oliver's death.

Instead, to hear the county prosecutor tell it, the case against Ms. Williams is not unlike one against a trucker caught driving without a license.

"He may be doing an awfully fine job of driving his truck," the prosecutor, R. Kent Apsley, a trim, intense and direct man, said in his office in the basement of the Shelby County courthouse. "But the state requires him to go through training, have his license and be subject to review."

Legal experts said prosecutions of midwives were rare but not unheard of, and Mr. Apsley suggested that he might have looked the other way but for Oliver's death. "There isn't anyone I'm aware of going out and doing surveillance of midwives," he said.

Iran nuke test in coming days?
Iran may be signaling that its war games will conclude with a nuclear detonation on Friday, or perhaps sooner:
"We are going to have very important news that will make our nation proud in the next few days," Dehqani added, without explaining. The week of wargames started on Friday.
It certainly won't be the first time we've been surprised.

joem in Bloggie Beit Midrash:
פסח ג׳ - מצה
Pesach III - Matzah

If chometz represents atzlus - laziness, and ga'ava - arrogance, matzah is just the opposite. Matzah is low; flat, unrisen bread made from only flour and water, lechem oni - "poor man's bread" or "the bread of my affliction", that the Haggadah says our forefathers ate when they were slaves in Mitzrayim. And it takes a lot of zerizus - great care and alacrity, to make matzah.
