Kepha: As a matter of fact Jews ARE more intelligent than other peoples. There is a reason: I will NOT explain -- I’d rather let you twist in the wind. But if you’re curious, and wish to know, you will find the answer in Ernest Van Den Haag’s brilliant book “The Jewish Mystique” available used on Amazon.
Every schoolchild with enough smarts and curiosity to get beyond the latest video game of "Call of Duty" ought to go see "Lincoln," the movie, and check out the references and his own attention span. It requires patience, but it shows through dramatic action how a self-taught rustic from the deep backwoods had the emotional and intellectual discipline to overcome poverty and grow up to be a president to rank among the greatest.

This is not about the American Dream or a Horatio Alger story. (Does anybody remember him?) Nor is it mythmaking. It's made of sterner stuff than that....
