Oh, Madonnanthology. Just when I think I've left your company behind, you come back, turning up like a bad penny or an "American Life" album. And just when I think Madonna's particular brand of non-Jewish Jewyness has reached its Mount Sinai (see also, "I'm Sorry," from the "Confessions on a Dance Floor" album, and say it with me...'slicccchhhha...'), there's more.
Nachamu, nachamu, ami--be comforted, my nation...be comforted. Wait, was that "my nation," or "LiveNation"?
Instead of running off to a singles weekend on La Isla Bonita -- ("What's that, girl? There's trouble? Madonna's marriage is down the well?") -- Madonna and husband are going to be spending the Shabbat after Tisha B'Av renewing their vows. (It's not clear that they will be fasting for Tisha B'Av, but Shabbos Nachamu is apparently their special holiday of love. If I'd been able to reach them for comment I have no doubt the celebrity couple would have said, "In your face, Bangitout Tu B'Av Party.")
