    levity and mentsch

    A friend of mine asked what "levity and mentsch" mean. Can some one explain it to me? I asked for further context but she said this was all she found. She read it on a piece of discarded newspaper or something

    Re: levity and mentsch

    "Mentsch" (or perhaps "Mensch") looks like a German word. The phrase means nothing to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
