At Least One Jew Went On To Become A Video Game Superhero

There might be a perfectly reasonable explanation behind my false sense of superiority. I blame today's retro video game pick, Solomon's Key. You see, every five levels or so were grouped together by a sign of the Zodiac. It started with Aries and moved forward. Aquarius, my birth mascot, was one of the last series of levels to play in this puzzle game. It's just a dude with a bucket of water. In retrospect, I had nothing to brag about. But it's a valid reason on which to blame the shortcomings of myself and of what's on TV today. Hope you like softball and lacrosse!
