115.02/ #ShavuaTov everyone & hello to the last day of 5782! I admit that I get a special thrill about skipping "Vayehi Noam" even though doing so implies my upcoming week has many days of isurei melakha. I love yuntif, honest I do, but I am a fan of writing & the internet, too.

Week 113 below.
114.02/ 12:50am #Slichot are great for my path of repentance because there's nothing like staying up super late on Motzei Shabbas at my age for filling me with regret. That's part of teshuva, right?
114.03/ And so it begins. See you in the 24th of #Tishrei for normal davening. Please God we'll all make it there together. #Slichot

Week 112 (for fun typo reasons mislabeled) below.
113.03/ Incredible.

[Alt-text: (1) the parody account "NYT Pitchbot" wrote a fictitious headline "Charles in Charge" and attributed it to Maureen D*owd on Sept. 8 (2) On Sept 10 D*wd wrote a column with that exact title.]

Week 111 below.
112.02/ This is good news about new registrations.

We need to make them pay for the lawless, corrupt and cruel SCOTUS and it's theocratic minority rule.
112.03/ I joined twitter because I saw how good it was for *immediate* news and also live commentary for sports (which is why I still keep my sports teams hashtags in my bio. I want to remember a simpler time).

110.02/ Why do they call it a "T-Shirt Gun" and not a "laundry shoot"?
110.03/ The way it's raining so hard right now gives me an urge to gather together 2 of every treife animal.

109.02/ Is there an award for putting an item in my Amazon cart, checking out "Customers who viewed this item also viewed", and seeing only things I've purchased over the past years? Some kind of "You are a singular oddball" award?
109.03/ Informative thread; this particular point is right out of halakha and the need for "hatra'ah" (warning) in order to establish mens rea.

Its #TishaBAv tonight & tomorrow; the saddest day in the Jewish calendar.

Week 107 thread below.
108.02/ My kids asked if they can watch TV to help get through the fast. I said after chatzot and as long as it's not laugh-inducing or super fun. They asked for an example & this year it's perfect: the home debut of #DeGrom! It's bashert.
108.03/ I've started calling #Diaz the #Matador. He's a shutdown closer with amazing, upbeat walk-up music. #LGM

107.02/ The absolute ghoulish glee I'm seeing people directing vitriol & dogpiling violence against @AnaMardoll is frightening. I see what you allow yourself to do to people you think are "acceptable" targets.

Week 105 below.
106.02/ A thread I wrote about my early Sunday morning interaction with your (un)friendly neighborhood troll; why I responded and what my goals were.
106.03/ This is an explosive thread about entirely plausible whistleblower backlash at the NewYorker - a mag my family have been subscribers to as long as I can remember - shows what real "cancel culture" looks like.

105.02/ Wait, hold on, the longest hottest fast day - #ShivaAsarBiTammuz - is #NationalIceCreamDay?! This is both irritatingly annoying... and religiously satisfying. We get extra credit for the fast!

105.03/ Gotta hand it to #ShivaAsarBiTammuz this year, it's getting its money's worth because I'm feeling really terrible. Excellent quality, consistent results. A well-crafted day of affliction. 5 stars on yelp and/or five yelps.

104.02/ I subscribe to @AlexandraErin on Buttondown but realized I didn't on @Patreon so I just rectified that. I very highly recommend her non-fiction writing (I'm sure her fiction is good too, but I haven't tried it yet so YMMV).

104.03/ This is a pretty extraordinary column all around, especially the story by my rebbe, Rav Riskin. It's also clear how much of a multi-dimensional gadol-hador Rav Moshe Feinstein z'l was. A gadol in chochma, bina, da'at and midot.

102.02/ Ambivalent Shabbas for me because while I was in rage-sorrow over the grievous injustice & harm wrought by the lawless RedHats, I also saw Shabbas as a refuge from the news.
102.03/ Parental Achievement Unlocked: just sent two of my kids on the train, travelling alone for their first time on their own, to see their grandparents.

Week 98 below.
99.02/ A good example of living in two worlds, religious and secular, is the coincidence of two sacred days: the 2nd day of #Shavuot on #DDay. Last night, after Yom Tov, only after reading the news a bit did my mind shift from "sacred to my religion" to "sacred to my citizenship"
99.03/ Pedantry Corner: it irks me to read divrei Torah about #Shavuot that enshrine incredibly recent customs as facts to derive universal truths. "This is the reason why Jews stay up all night..." or "why we eat dairy" - nope. Please don't make fads into load-bearing verities.

98.02/ Valuable thread about the gun industry and I learned from him an excellent term I will now incorporate into my social theory: Agnotology = "the cultural production of ignorance."
98.03/ Wow: "The science is abundantly clear: More guns do not stop crime. Guns kill more children each year than auto accidents. More children die by gunfire in a year than on-duty police officers and active military members." (Scientific American)

97.02/ #ShavuaTov everyone. My wife texted from Israel that she got positive PCR test when she landed in Israel - one day before they rescinded that requirement! She's asymptomatic, thank God, but I just don't know how it could've been avoided b/c the 'rona is rampant y'all.
97.03/ It was in the 90s today and my downstairs A/C broke days ago and I can't get a guy here until Tuesday. I told them they can prioritize others because my upstairs A/C works, Thank God, so it's not a safety issue for us. But I wouldn't mind it getting fixed soon.

Week 95 below.
96.02/ Because we are.

And it's about the same people. The GOP is the Confederacy right down to the rotten core of cowardly rebels.
96.03/ It's really this simple. And b/c it's actually this simple, it's clear anti-voters don't understand citizenship & shared responsibility like I do.

They're like anti-vaxers that way. In this way too: both threaten all our lives when they opt out.

95.02/ Them: "What will I tell my kids?!"

Me: "Talk to them, teach them, it's part of the role of parent. I do it all the time."

My kids: "Yes! He does! Please make him stop!"

Me, distributing handouts: "OK, on page 3, we have fieldnotes I took in '95..."

Kids: "Nooooo!"
95.03/ Hey, I think I got the @HowieRose trivia question for the first time today (Q: which Rolling Stones song mentions the Kentucky Derby. A: "Dead Flowers"). But I refuse to believe this is one of Howie's favorite songs. It's purposefully terrible, man. It's just awful.
