7 ’Av 5768: The Nine Days/Happiness Happens Day


Worthy causes of the day: “Tell President Bush: China's abuses must end”, “Tell Congress to Rein in DHS Travel Abuses”, and “Take Action: Protect your right to have a voice when it comes to our oceans!”

Today’s news and commentary:Today’s H. P. Lovecraft story, in lieu of a weird thing due to the Nine Days, is “The Shunned House”.


Theological review of “The Shunned House”:

This is another low-relevance wonder, with no real theological aspect either. It’s also pretty dull, so don’t waste your time reading it.

Theological rating: I (for irrelevancy).

Scariness rating: The Stuff does what this story hopes to do much better, despite being silly. My pants weren’t aware this story was supposed to make them budge.

Coming up Sunday: “The Book”.

Shabbath shalom.
