  1. This statement is presented from the standpoint of practice, but from the standpoint of theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, neither in theory nor in practice.

    • You are right because from the standpoint of theory you do not have to be right in practice. To theoreticians, reality is schmendriks. And to hard core realists, theoreticians are schmendriks.

  2. Ahhh…… but wait!
    You haven’t properly pursued the median compromise between theory and practice. The solution is cleverly explicated with an application of quantum theory.
    Consider for a moment that you’re speeding along at an accelerating velocity approaching the speed of light. This attainment stretches space-time and effects a massive quantum distortion in the space-time continuum field.. Then a fork is ripped open in the field, and you have no choice but to take it.
    I think Yogi Berra got his master’s degree in neologistic phraseology with a paper on the subject.

  3. Can you please find out about why rabbi Weinberger David isn’t anymore the rav of congregation shaaray tefilah of lawrence ny?

    • I have it from several sources that he was dismissed for sexual misconduct. Several reporters are sniffing around the story and I expect more details to appear in print in the coming weeks.
