Jewish date: 5 Nisan 5769.

NOTE:  Pesaḥ (Passover) is coming soon.  See OU Kosher for Passover for useful information.

Today’s quasi-holidays: Doctor’s Day, National Hot Dog Day, Grass Is Always Browner on the Other Side of the Fence Day.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. Current progress:  Working on draft 2 of the chapter “Ode to Truth”, dealing with basic epistemology.  (The thing about writing a book is actually happening.)  Yesterday I wrote material about the distinction between fact and opinion and between knowledge and belief.
  2. Due to a schedule conflict, I have not watched the latest episode of Kings yet.
Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is the sarcasm mark, which is explained further in “A Giant Step Forward for Punctuation¡:   Introducing the long-awaited sarcasm point.”  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
