Today is the Jewish holiday of Purim. (Unlike the biblically-based Jewish holidays, this is one, like Chanuka, on which orthodox Jews such as myself are allowed to blog!)

The outcome isn’t always funny, or even fun, except perhaps in the sense of the divine comedy.Purim mesiba, mesivta, New Jersey

It all comes around in the end, though!
