Keeping Control of the Media

Jews are both smart and funny, the two New York weeklies tell us this week.

A cover story in New York magazine, featuring Larry David, tells us of a new study arguing that partially due to the diseases passed down through the Ashkenazic community over the years, Jews may in fact be genetically smarter than others. Accurate? Good for the Jews? Not sure, but it's certainly a fascinating read.

In the New Yorker, meanwhile, there's a great profile of Sarah Silverman, that finally gets to the bottom of that whole Joe Franklin scandal from "The Aristocrats."
