Tonight marks the Jewish holiday of Purim, in which we remember Queen Esther, her uncle Mordechai, and their work to save the Jewish community of Shushan, Persia from destruction by the evil Haman. I've always wondered if the Islamofascist regime in Iran would fall on this holiday some year. Haman and Khamenei, sound close enough, right?
On a personal note, it is also my grandfather's birthday. He is turning 105, so I wanted to take this opportunity to wish him Yom Huledet Sameach. Here's a picture of him taken a couple of years ago.
