A great day in the history of the blog

It was on March 1, 2005, that I wrote and published In Praise of Men. Though its six years old(!) and a bit dated, having been written to mark the completion of the Daf Yomi cycle, the point the post makes remains true, and the 75 comments remain excellent.

Here's how the post began:

As I write this, thousands of men are gathered to celebrate the completion of the 11th cycle of the Daf HaYomi.

I'm in awe.

Previous generations of men needed to dream up elaborate excuses like hunting to escape their domestic obligations. But hunting is work, and sort of athletic, so this missed the point. The guys concluding the Daf HaYomi today are on to a much better scam: They get out of the house, too, but all they have to do is sit at a table and feign interest. Read the rest of In Praise of Men
