15 'Adhar 5766 * 15 March 2006: Pure Shushan/Ides of March/Brutus Day


Pure Shushan is the day I get to use to do stuff I did not manage to do due to the Fast of ’Esther or Purim. And the first word of the name is a Hebrew construct-case plural noun, not an English adjective. The name is usually rendered in an order sensible for English grammar, as “Shushan Purim”, but I’m in a Hebraic-purist mood.

Relevant to the Ides of March/Brutus Day: “Julius Cæsar”.

Today’s news:Today’s weird thing is “Star Trek tricorder ready for beam up”. (I cannot make something like this up.) Enjoy.
