    The real reason we fast is because we feel guilty if we don’t. (Those who don’t fast have evolved beyond this kind of guilt…)

      Yea this is my first year I plan on not fasting, as much as I may want our historic bbq stand to return.

      I guess it’s kind of like eating corn on Pesach.

    Hey, at least we don’t throw stones at each other’s synagogues–at least not yet!

    • A. Nuran July 16, 2013, 1:45 PM

      Synagogues, maybe not. But there’s been plenty of stones thrown at cars and people

      • Dan July 17, 2013, 11:27 AM

        yeah, what’s the point of throwing stones at synogogues. Walls don’t bleed.

    Thank you, Heshy.
