More to Stephen Bloom, because he pisses me off.

I just saw you on NBC, interviewed by Willie Geist.  Wow, Stephen Bloom.  You are really anti-Christian, aren't you?  For a Jewish man, who has had, I'm sure, encounters with anti-semitism, you sure are quick to be prejudiced.

You are living in Iowa.  Do you realize that the Midwest was settled by immigrants from northern Europe?  People from Germany, Scandinavia, the British Isles?  Last time I checked, most of those people are Protestants.  Lots of Lutherans and Methodists, and Presbyterians, and Episcopalians.  Some Catholics.  Not too may Jews.

So get over it.  You knew, moving to Iowa, that there is not a large Jewish population.  If you didn't, you are pretty naive.  Oh, and by the way, there have been bagels in Iowa City long before you moved here in the early 90s.  I've been living here since 1984, and found bagels pretty darn accessible before you got here.

Get over yourself.
