The recipient, Franklyn Gimbel, said of the email, "He kinda missed the boat there. 'Molotov' is a far cry from 'mazel tov.'" Walker said it was probably a typo and added, "I figured nationally my thumb has healed up and my bald spot is boring now, so they're going to talk about things like that." Gimbel said Walker might want to consider hiring some Jewish staffers. "His staff is white Christian," he said.

Look away,' " Kallin said during her closing argument in the trial of James D. Kirk. "And isn't that really what you've kind of been asked to do? Look away from the two eyewitnesses. Look away from the two victims. Look away from the nurse and her medical opinion. Look away. Look away." Kirk was convicted of felony lewd conduct with a 17-year-old girl and sexual battery of a 13-year-old girl.
