Shabbat shalom! A week indeed. Hurricane/post-hurricane Sandy caused death and destruction in the Northeast and we hope that all of your friends and family in the east are safe. We have been stunned by the videos and photos. And yet, due to science and preparation, what a remarkable outcome for the people in the impact areas – loss of life to be sure, but only a fraction of those lost in Hurricane Katrina. Several groups have opened giving campaigns in support of the victims.
As a counterbalance, we enjoyed seeing many of you on Tuesday at the Boulder JCC’s Exclusive Preview of First Bite Boulder. If you haven’t seen the photos or video, be sure to check them out, and support the restaurants that have given much to our community during the First Bite event, November 9-17.
Thursday night, President Obama made a stop in Boulder, for a rally at CU. Friday 11/2 is the last day to vote early in Boulder. If you were planning on using a mail-in ballot, the safest route now is to drop it off at the county clerk’s office (additional Boulder County collection points can be found at this link). You can also check online to see that your mailed-in ballot has been accepted. Election Day is Tuesday and your vote counts!
In a week with so much heaviness, a lighter note. Readers of the New York Times may have recognized a familiar construction in the title of this week’s post. Apparently, headlines that start with prepositions catch more interest, so we thought we would give it a try. The trend has also spread to rewriting of some classic book and movie titles – read about it here.
Have a great weekend!
