So apparently this story is among the most popular on CNN.com right now.
A couple thoughts:
Have you ever heard of any Irish people offering free booze to the first 50 families that move to their neighborhood?
What about black people offering a 12 month supply of fried chicken?
No, you haven't, because that would be considered extremely racist and stereotypical.
However, since they're offering money it's ok - money is the standard by which we trade goods and compensate people for their work. Except that money is like crack for Jewish people.
Also, there aren't really any Jews in the south - if these people really wanted to live around lots of other Jews, they could move to Brooklyn. I heard there are a lot of Jewish people in New York.
