I've been called many names on this blog few of which have been complimentary. But the charge that I acknowledge that my critics can best make stick is that I am annoying.
Do you know what I find annoying as H**l? Talking about the fundamentals of our faith to a group of Jews who ought to know better as if they were first time attendees at a Gateways or Discovery retreat. I've been accused of making unsupported "assertions". How am I supposed to provide external validation for a self-validating system (the Torah)? The cubbies want theorems where I provide axioms. Any idea how frustrating and annoying that is? Try providing evidence for truths YOU hold to be self-evident. Try explaining what a strawberry tastes like and then, when you finish, have the mouth that has never ingested a strawberry call you a liar making unsupported and unsupportable assertions. טַעֲמוּ וּרְאוּ, כִּי-טוֹב יְהוָה; אַשְׁרֵי הַגֶּבֶר, יֶחֱסֶה-בּו "O TASTE and see that the LORD is good; happy is the man that taketh refuge in Him."
Nothing sums it up more pithily than that old Yiddish adage gey rehd fahrbin tsu ah blihnder="Go explain colors to a congenitally blind person"
