Rabbi Rushfield’s Wistful Goodbye: Rabbi Richard Rushfield clearly had a lump in his throat as he closed out his post on the kick-off of the American Idol 53-city concert tour: “Outside in the still over 100-degree night, over 100 fans line a railing three stories above the driveway where the Idols would soon be loading into tour buses, their overnight homes as they make their way toward San Diego for Day Two of this last leg of their Idol journey.
