WIRTW #196 (the “atonement” edition)

As I’ve mentioned in this space before, my family is of mixed religion. I’m Jewish and my wife is Catholic. I offer this information because tonight at sundown begins Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement. Unlike Catholics, who confess their sins every week, we Jews ask for God’s forgiveness in a lump sum, once per year on Yom Kippur.

While this comparison is an over-simplification, it nevertheless serves as a jumping-off point to offer my apologies for any posts I’ve written over the past year that might have offended. I do not offer this apology for my viewpoints and opinions—for which I would never apologize or shy away from. Instead, I apologize if language and word choice caught some of my readers off-guard. Employment law can be dirty and offensive. For me, it’s part of what makes it interesting. It is not, however, everyone’s cup of tea.

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:
