21 ’Adhar Sheni 5768: Mom’s birthday/International Dadaism Month/Something On A Stick Day

Greetings.

Worthy causes of the day: “Justice for the Angola 3”, “Stand up for Democracy in the Democratic Party”, and “Congress Must Protect Our Drinking Water”.

Also: Happy birthday, Mom!

Divine misconception of the day: “Parents pick prayer over docs; girl dies”. It is perfectly correct theology that “healing comes from God”. The mistake is assuming that God is going to heal people just because of their faith or prayer; this has not been observed to be correct. In His abundant mercy, God has granted us ever-increasing knowledge of biology and medicine and bestowed doctors upon us, resulting in cures where certain death or chronic illness were the case before, prevention of horrible diseases, and longer life-spans.

Today’s news and commentary, some of which Barry is responsible for:Yesterday, while at the post office, a bizarre idea occurred to me which seemed unique. However, a quick search reveals I have been beaten to it. Nevertheless, I present it to you as today’s weird thing: “1984. The Musical”. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
