It's been some time since I've received Mussar from Bray, so perhaps a foray into the American Football scene will elicit an illicit response.
The Denver Broncos released the rising star Tim Tebow, and replaced him with the fading star Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning has gone on to shatter some NFL passing records, including 51 TD passes in a season, and the season is still not over, while Tim Tebow is out of a job.
Chochmo BaGoyim Ta'amin.
This past week we were gratified to hear the news that Yanky Ostreicher has been spirited back to U.S. soil. In one of the biggest travesties of justice, he had been falsely Imprisoned in the lawless land of Bolivia.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Askanim, pulic servants and an actor, he is now able to appreciate this great altruistic Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave.
We should all learn a lesson from this to really appreciate the justice and freedom that we experience in this Medinah Shel Chessed.

I don't really understand what all the fuss is about.
