Re: Prison
Anonymity is over-rated in these forums.

i always wondered what the big deal is. if you know me, you know my story. if you don't, so what? this story is not a secret and it's not shameful. neither is anything i've said on this forum. if something is truly private, i wouldn't be talking about it.

Nice find.

Does the speaker amplify the noise of the blender to make it sound more effective?  :D

And even if it wasn't buried something like this deserves its own thread

Re: Rubashkin freed from prison. What's absolutely mind-boggling to consider is if the judge had not been such a zealot, and sentenced him to, say, 16 years (which would have been both (i) far more consistent with comparable sentences and (ii) not more than the 25 years the prosecutors had asked for!), the outcry would not have been as big, the support to free him not as widespread, and the unity among klal yisroel not as strong.

It was precisely because of the unprecedented 27-year sentence that he's out after "only" eight, and not sitting for double that.

I think there's a relevant lesson here. Not often are people in this world afforded the opportunity to see the maxim of "gam zu letovah" come to vibrant life, that if the hand of God is moving, it is only doing so for the best. 

An analogy that has always struck me is embroidery.  As you may know, the bottom of an embroidered picture is a chaotic, haphazard mess.  However, from the perspective of the creator, everything is in deliberate, beautiful, harmonized order.

Too many times in life we look up, shake our heads, and wonder "How could this happen?" "What did we do to deserve this?"

In those trying times, think of Shalom Rubashkin and the embroidered picture, and know that although it may look ugly from our humanly vantage (from the bottom), that is not so in true reality--from above, this, that, or whatever, is deliberate, beautiful, and for the best.

Re: Comments That Leave Me Speechless...
we can make an entire thread just from the "Comments That Leave Me Speechless..." just from that post
Indeed. But I think this one stands out more than others.
