Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/21/2016)
I can’t wait for the election to be over. There is a bad candidate and a worse candidate, and a media circus that is loving every minute of it all while checking out the bottom line and bathing in money. But how about the Dolphins last weekend? I bet that surprised many of you. Hopefully, the team remains strong even with the loss of Reshad Jones. The NBA regular season is about to start as well, with everyone doing their best to knock of the Warriors. We shall see!
