Rosh Hashanah 2009

Today is Rosh Hashanah. I will be in Temple, followed by a visit to sick patients in the hospital. Visiting sick patients in the hospital on Rosh Hashanah is like drinking a diet soda with a ten billion calorie meal, which I also do.

I am under no illusions that I fall way short on so many levels. I also know that even the tiniest sliver of decency is better than zero.

Anyway, this column is pre-written. Saturdays during NFL Season is for football predictions. Jewish people will most likely not see this column until the end of the holiday on Sunday night, or even Monday. Then again, much of what I write is obsolete anyway.

Happy Rosh Hashanah to those observing, and for those not doing so, enjoy the football games.
