Just in time for Hanukkah, this rag was honored in the august pages of the Cleveland Jewish News. The weekly tabloid dedicated a full-page column, written by esteemed editor Cynthia Dettelbach, to our recent expose on the Jewish dating scene ["Cupid's Crisis
," December 13].
At first, we were overjoyed. Look! There's even a picture!
But our happiness quickly turned to horror. Dettelbach, it turns out, accused us of adopting a mocking tone. She said the article was "snarky," "often sarcastic," and "rife with Jewish stereotypes," while admitting that it was "sometimes laugh-out-loud funny" and, actually, kind of accurate.
But it still hurts to be drilled by a lady in a Nancy Reagan hairdo. We're now contemplating taking umbrage, but we're too lazy to look "umbrage" up in the dictionary to make sure we're doing it right. — Lisa Rab
