    Because it's somewhat counter-intuitive. You would think that you register as the party you most closely align with. You have to actually know that the only elections where your vote matters are the (usually) local D primaries and because it's a closed primary you need to be registered D for it.
    I am proud to be a registered D that (almost) never votes D.

    I also actually found it interesting to get the following text message on my phone:

    Kehos and Judaica world have a set of leather books (like a gift for a Kallah). I imagine other Judaica stores do as well.

    It looks like most of the Mitteler Rebbe's Seforim are in print. If that's your type of thing, grab it while it's there.

    Possibly Sushi Spot 2, Or Noribar. Both on Kingston, and both taste great.
