Spectacular, sunny and pleasant today in Jerusalem, cats and people are taking in the rays with a watchful eye on the skies, as we're expecting a 20 degree (Farenheidt, not that wierd Celcius thing) drop in temperature within 24 hours, followed by a snowstorm.
Even though we remember daily in our prayers that HaShem delivered us from Egypt, we still hang out in the land of Denial (de Nile -duh!), each in his or her own way. Today we're warm, tomorrow we're cold. Today we have "quiet" - the word we use to describe the absence of either terrorism or a full-out war - tomorrow we may, G_d forbid, have... noise. What do we do during the calm before the storm? Sit in the sun and sigh.

In what can only be described as new heights in the lowest of the low, Islamic Fascist Terrorists strapped bombs onto the bodies of two women with Downs Syndrome and let them loose in a crowded marketplace, detonating them and killing 99 people in Iraq today.
They've used the poor. They've used their own children. Now they are using the disabled. Who's next?
If anyone had any small vestige or shred of doubt about the pure evil of this spiritual darkness, this ought to dispell any notions that we are dealing with a culture worse, if conceivably possible, than even the Nazis. Dr. Mengele himself would have been proud of the guy who masterminded using the disabled as unwitting suicide bombers.
