Subject: RE: BS: Dear Dr Laura
corrected post

I was reacting to this portion: "Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew...."

I'd be more curious to know what she has said lately, as most human beans I know change and grow with time. She's a brilliant woman-- despite any flawed views she may hold-- so, I'm curious what she might be saying MORE "recently."

BTW when I get a forwarded email like that (if it contains an inaccuracy like a 5-year-old "recently") I correct it before further forwarding it. Just because we receive an email suggesting we forward it doesn't mean we have to pass it on un-critically.

It would be fun to look back in my saved emails to see what I was sure of 5 years ago that is no longer rigidly held. It would not surprise me if that applied to most people.
