The honorable Rep. Steve Israel can scream Antisemetism, or he can treat this less than complimentary expose of shallowness, vulgarity and cheap imitation of life as a wake-up call to to the Jewish American nouveaux riches and their values which have created the loud mouthed, stupid and unappealing stereotypes he so resents. Phillip Roth saw this coming a half centry ago. These brainless, souless JAPS or "princess piggies" do exist, along side some of the finest young Jewish men and and women and human beings on this planet. But tlet there be no mistake. In our haste and waste to achieve financial security, and turn financial security into the be-all and do-all. we also created them. They are part of us, and as soon as we get over the denial, we can do something about it.
