• According to her family, toxicology tests found no substances in Amy Winehouse’s system. Does this lend credence to the theory that the Jewish soul singer died from going cold turkey? [ArtsBeat]

• Significantly, Iran has granted a U.N. inspector access to a site with advanced centrifuges for uranium enrichment. [AP/WP]

• Jonathan Tobin explains why Israel is right to have refrained from apologizing to Turkey over last year’s flotilla. [Contentions]

• This is what I meant: people outside the shtetl—I’m looking at you, Katy Perry!—frequently step in it without meaning to when they discuss Israel. (No but actually this is crazy.) [Michelle Malkin]

• Joe Lieberman on his sex life (that got your attention!). [Moment]

• A lawsuit over three George Grosz paintings that the Supreme Court will likely not consider brings up questions of whether Holocaust-related art cases should be decided on the basis of legal technicalities or the spirit of the law. [NYT]

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.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at 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.

They would say that.

She died way before her time.

Prayers for Amy Winehouse.

Lynne T says:

Adam — do you have any evidence to suggest that the Windhouses are lying about the toxicology reports? Addicts can and do die from the combined effects on the body of long-term substance abuse and sudden withdrawal from the addictive substance.
