Jewish date:  23 Nisan 5769.

Today’s holiday:  Day 8 of the ‘Omer.

Today’s quasi-holiday:  Blah Blah Blah Day.

Worthy causes of the day:  “Tell Vanguard to Divest from Sudan” and “Tell the Pesticide Peddlers: We support Michelle Obama's organic garden.”

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:  See today’s weird thing below.  I have finished reading Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion and have a good basis for a review of it in my head, only with post-Pesaḥ cleanup and catching up with things not dealt with during the holiday, it may take a while before my critique is crystalized in essay form and is posted on this blog.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is some creative advertising on the part of the Roman Catholic Church which even non-Catholics may find amusing: Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
