Beware of ghosts

Greetings.

Jewish date:  7 ’Iyyar 5769.

Today’s holidays:  Day 22 of the ‘Omer, Festival of Ridvan, Walpurgis.

Today’s quasi-holidays:  May Day, Save a Rhino Day.

Worthy causes of the day:  “Sign the open letter to President Obama” and “Impeach Jay Bybee”.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. More intolerance:  “Authorities trying to keep secret arrests and sentences of Tibetan monks”, “China Still Presses Crusade Against Falun Gong”, “Mais Forbids Ahmadiyya Worship”, “RUSSIA: The battle with 'religious extremism' - a return to past methods?”, and “UZBEKISTAN: More severe jail sentences for Muslim prisoners of conscience”.
  2. Unusual intolerance: “Stewardess sacked for refusing to wear Islamic robe and walk behind male colleagues”.
Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is Pac-Txt. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
