I was told that in order to maintain a sense of "credibility" that I need to comment on the CH Beis Din Psak that was issued by Mechon LeHoro'oh yesterday. You know, it's times like these that I really start to think that maybe I'm talking to a bunch of idiots, if you'll excuse my French. I have stated this many times and I have stayed true to my policy of really not discussing stam current event politics. Not from any kreiz. Which is what so many of you can't stand about me and this blog. If I'd be busy knocking other kreizen all day and highlighting all the infighting that goes on there, and I wouldn't write about Lubavitcher happenings, then you'd have a real case about me. But I don't, and you can't stand that. Then there's the general of me not caring. I could care less about which slate runs the CH community council or the Vaad Hakashrus. I may have maybe once cared about who is THE Rov in Crown Heights, but even that interest has long since passed. I do think that the fact that they went to D"T and may even listen to the psak is commendable in this day and age, as sad as that may sound, but other than that what is there to write?!
So please. If you feel like you need to deflect critique from your group, go right ahead and send in the nasty comments. If they're quasi-intelligent and to the point I may even let them through. But don't expect me to write about the silly non-exciting politics.
