Beware of wannabe Starfleet personnel

Greetings.

Jewish date:  5 Siwan 5769.

Today’s holidays:  Day 49 of the ‘Omer (‘Erev Shavu‘oth), Thursday of the Seventh Week of Easter.

Note:  Tomorrow is Shavu‘oth, a major Jewish holiday which commemorates the Divine revelation on Mount Sinay.  There will be no blog entry tomorrow.  I do not stay up all night learning (the practice comes from the Zohar), so I get to be more awake than many other people tomorrow.

Today’s quasi-holidays:  Slugs Return from Capistrano Day, National Hamburger Day, Whale Day.

Worthy causes of the day:  “Will Your Representative Help Sea Otters?”, “Allow Seniors the Choice of Independent Living”, and “Don't Let Walmart Cut Corners on store security”.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:  “How Bad Is The Day School Crisis?”:  Something that has to be resolved.  Jewish children need a good Jewish education, but the costs have to be something that parents can afford.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing, submitted by Barry, is Real Tricorders.  Enjoy, share the weirdness, live long and prosper, and ḥagh sameaḥ.
