7:26pm Comment: A reader (or two) complained about our joke in the email blast connected to this update.
Some (if not all, at this point) of our staff have had to run numerous times to the bomb shelter, and others have children stationed in the IDF preparing for God knows what, and let’s not get started on Milluim (please). Our way of dealing with the stress is with gallows humor. We apologize if you thought it was inappropriate, but for us, it is essential for our mental health and ability to deal with the stressful situation we are currently under.
Thank you for understanding, and it won’t happen again.
