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.
