Slate's David Plotz: Samson 'Dumbest Jew Who Ever Lived'
Description:Like many Jews and Christians, David Plotz, editor of Slate Magazine, long assumed he knew what was in the Bible. He read parts of it as a child in Hebrew school, then attended a Christian high school where he studied the Old and New Testaments.

In this video he argues that perhaps Samson was not as clever as first thought.(1:55)
