The New Money Man

Congratulations to Jack Lew who was yesterday approved by the Senate for the position of Secretary of the Treasury. I wish him lots of luck. He’ll need it.

Unlike other distinguished Jewish Secretaries of the Treasury (like Bob Rubin and Bill Summers) Jack Lew is not only Jewish but he is observant - a Shomer Shabbos Jew. Something we can all be proud of.

If he can get us out of this sequester mess somehow, he will not only be Jewish... and not only be observant... he will be a genius and a hero.
