15 Marheshwan 5767 * 6 November 2006: Saxophone Day/Yarov`am ben Nevat Day

Greetings.

Note that tomorrow is election day in the US. If you are registered to vote, please vote for the best (or, more accurately, least bad) candidate. Remember: if we don’t vote, politicians do nothing to make sure we vote for them—a sure way to make sure someone who does not have the public’s best interests at heart gets into office.

Also: In an attack on the mistaken notion that only the prayers of religious people are important and that those of the nonreligious are worthless, I, a (relatively) holy man (given I live in the religious backwater of Charleston, SC), do hereby request that nonreligious people pray on my behalf and bestow their blessing on me for a job, a wife, and children. In the Kol Nidhre prayer, it is declared that it is permissible to worship along with transgressors; as such, no one should feel that they have no business approaching YHWH. With all humans created in the Divine image, we are all equally entitled to have a relationship with YHWH. Since everyone has access, everyone’s prayer, even that of the nonreligious, ought to be worthwhile.

Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is Mouse Print, which delves in the ominous world of small print. Enjoy, and share the weirdness.
