Go read this. It’s Armin Rosen writing for Tablet about the age-old Grateful Dead question: Why are there so many Jews up in here? Can’t throw a rock at a Dead show without hitting a Jew, but you shouldn’t do that as it is a hate crime. Please do not throw rocks at Jews; it makes us sad.
I won’t. I’ll never advocate stoning Jews. I have principles.
You’re a carcass on a frontage road.
Nevertheless. TotD is quoted in the piece, alongside people with credentials who use their real names like big boys, and Armin gets at all the angles from the spiritual to the sociologic. My view is that Jews love smoking pot and going to college, and if you smoke enough pot and go to enough college, well: you’re gonna hear the Dead eventually. Others have actually intelligent things to say.
