Run Through The Jungle

2009-09-28 - 12:57 p.m.

It was a pretty good weekend here at Chez Too Old.

Friday I went to the stadium and picked up a ticket for the final home game of the season. The Angels' magic number is down to 2, and they play the Rangers for the next four games. So all the Angels have to do is beat the Rangers ONCE to clinch.

By the time Thursday rolls around, the game may be mathematically meaningless. I'll still have fun, though.

Oh, and this game has a 335pm start time, so I can leave by 2pm to make the bus.


Saturday was more baseball and laundry and a band gig. It didn't seem too crowded at the bar, but the bartender said that sales were good.

Sunday was "cheap Chinese" food day.

I also caught most of the premiere of the fifteenth series of The Amazing Race. I used to watch it during the first couple series, and got seriously into it. Subsequent seasons, not so much.

It's always interesting to see parts of the world - cities, people, forests, jungles, rivers - that you don't usually get to see. And it's also an interesting look into human nature, watching the teams try to screw each other up.

This may work its way back into my Sunday nights. We'll see.


Do rabbis have the same religious conviction about privacy - confession or not - as Catholic priests?

At least one doesn't.

What possible good does this do? Does this clear up misconceptions? Or does this just sell more books?


Okay, off to work.

Be seeing you.

Just for the record, no, a rabbi doesn't have a particular obligation to maintain confidentiality, although if he is acting as a counsellor and is asked to keep things private then he certainly ought to. I have no way of knowing whether or not MJ asked for confidentiality, the rabbi in the link says quite the opposite. I have no idea what to think of the man, but as a rabbi he is doing nothing wrong.

Mel, thanks for the clarification. I honestly wasn't sure.
