Adventures in Wisconsin Judaism

So, I live in Madison, Wisconsin. There is no eruv (I miss my heels, which can't make the 20-minute walk to anywhere on Shabbos), no kosher meat or cheese, no non-Chabad frum shul, no Chinese food, no kosher restaurant that also serves sushi. We do, however, have two Shloimys and a sheitel guy (who asked me if I needed mine back before Shabbat). That's as good as a pizza shop, right?

Socialites: They're Just Like Us

Apparently, it's not just frum women who wear wigs; really rich people wear wigs, too. Mostly, it seems, because they're more convenient than doing your own hair after the gym. I guess this is true, but does that really justify a $5,000 wig and $10,000 a year in upkeep. Clearly, this woman needs to find herself a sheitel macher because she is overpaying. And who puts a wig in a box?
