I heard the television show with Sheldon in it (I forget what it’s called, oh yeah, that’s right, Big Band Theory) on in the background and got to thinking about the cultural background of the main (male) characters: an ‘American’, an ‘Indian’ and two ‘Jews’.

Then I got to thinking about culture and for some reason particularly what I thought of Jewish culture. Basically they seem to me to value intelligence and seek wisdom; and I think that’s respectable.

Then I decided I’m hardly in a position to have an opinion because I have next to no experience in the matter being a relatively unworldly and untraveled individual, and that at any rate in general I cared about culture just about as much as I care about superstition.
