Where the streets have names

I'm off, Manchester. Another week and a bit and I'm gone. Charming man leaves charmless city shocker. Not that I don't love the place, I do. Hugely. But it's over. O, V, A, H, Ovah, in the words of Kath & Kim.

No more Ordsall Lane. No more Cooper Street (I still remember why). No more Oxford Road - it was mostly for you, Jane. Bye bye Tib Street. See you Trinity. I never got to live on Moon Grove.

Darby House (you could see the Holy Name Church, I wept with excitement). Kensington Avenue (Harriet, Donna, Emma, Louise, Sally). (Dickenson Road & Mabfield Road - Helen? Claire?). Kippax Street (Spude, Cookie, Jenny Hot Tea, Cat). Mellor Road (Jane, Saffron, Cookie again). Daisy Bank Road (Jane again, Sue, Simon, Julia - are you ok Julia?). Stainer Street (Laura, I
love you). Blackfriars Road. South Hall Street.

Hathersage Road. Great Western Street. Tariff Street. Dale Street. Lever Street. Thomas Street. Cross Street. St Stephen's Street. Blossom Street. Bloom Street. Canal Street. Princess Street. Stockport Road (even).

I can't remember the street my first boyfriend lived on. But I kissed him somewhere above Booth Street West and nothing has ever been that promising again.

Nothing.

Awh, its not the leaving of Manchester that grieves him then.

So, pastures new? Any sense of direction?

Hope your new times go well.

Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at www.samsonblinded.org/blog



Best wishes,

Eugene Gershin
