Monday bits, Sept 15 version

Another potpourri entry for Monday morning.

  • Plane flights that land at 10:40 pm lead to grogginess at 5:30 the next morning. Evidence: I think this is a profound observation right now.
  • The count in my EPAA in-box this morning: Spam 42, Real Authors 1. And that's after the spam filter did its work.
  • Some bar/bat mitzvahs have very difficult Torah portions. My nephew's was Ki Tetze (Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19), which begins, translated roughly, "If your army has taken a beautiful woman captive in war, and you want to rape her, you first need to wait a month for her to mourn her dead parents."
  • No meetings today!!!!
