Charles Krauthammer seems like a decent man. A great Conservative thinker and intellectual. He was raised in an Orthodox home first in New York and then in Montreal. He was paralyzed as a young man when he jumped into a swimming pool and broke his neck but that didn't stop him from becoming a Psychiatrist - even without the use of his legs and barely his arms. He then became a political and social commentator. He is a tremendously talented person, possibly the most influential Conservative columnist in America. [He also grew up in Canada when my mother was growing up there. His father was from Belgium as is mine. He grew up religious as did I. And I recall hearing my father relate that he knew Dr. Krauthammer from when he went to Long Beach in the summers back in the day. See the article on the bottom from the Washington Post. Plus - my middle name is Charles:-). Really. When I want to have fun I call myself that. Or Chuck. Or Charlie. My email is "alchehrm" which is short for Allan Charles Ehrman - my passport-birth-certificate-name. So I feel connected to him. I am also Conservative in my thinking while being Orthodox in my Judaism and Liberal in how I try to compliment people:-)].
