Round-Up: Friday, Mar. 12, 2010

Read: Ruling coalition in Israel is fighting over a proposed path to easing conversion to Judaism. And it sounds like it can get pretty petty: “When I die, I’ll go straight to heaven just for having pushed through this bill,” says David Rotem, chairman of parliament’s law committee and a member of Yisrael Beitenu (meaning “Israel is our home”). “I don’t know where opponents of the bill will go.” Ultra-Orthodox members, apparently confident of their place in heaven, protested. A member of the Labour party, another coalition partner, said that if the ultra-Orthodox were in heaven he would rather not go there."

That Gaga video WAS insane. I expected them to Thelma and Louise it over a cliff at the end though. So I guess I'm a little disappointed.
