Gustav Klimt’s Frauenbildnis (Portrait of Ria Munk III).(Business & Leadership)

• The commander who landed on the biggest flotilla ship says he was beaten, threatened by knives, and thrown down a deck. [Ynet]

• After confiscating weapons, and not including expired medicine (which was apparently most of it), the Israeli military transported the flotilla’s aid cargo into Gaza. [Arutz Sheva]

• Turkey’s foreign minister criticized the United States for preventing a stronger condemnation. [WSJ]

• Mossad head Meir Dagan, who is widely respected, testifed, “Israel is becoming less of a strategic asset for America.” [JPost]

• A Holocaust victim’s heirs are preparing to auction off a Gustav Klimt for as much as an estimated $26 million. [Ynet]

• Seeds from a kibbutz-made, genetically-modified type of cherry tomato are selling for $160,000 per pound (!). [LAT]

Kaus for Senate!

And, 20 years ago, Wellstone for Senate!

Those are some fast Jews!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

great blog! keep up the great work!

I need to say, youve got among the best blogs Ive seen in a lengthy time. What I wouldnt give to be able to produce a blog thats as fascinating as this. I guess Ill just need to maintain reading yours and hope that 1 day I can write on a subject with as considerably understanding as youve got on this one!

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

For some reason, I can’t see all of this article, the text keeps disappearing? Are you taking advantage of DHTML?
