After Action Assessment

I found this, from my old friend Glenn Dor­skind, to be especially poignant:

"I tried for Woodstock and it almost turned into Altamont."

With his highly personal and heartfelt opening statement, Mr. Dorskind, an English teacher in the Westhampton Beach School District, had set a perfect tone for the "eruv evening."

To the detriment of all and through no fault of Glenn's, it quickly deteriorated after that.

Quoted from the linked source:

"Altamont was the product of diabolical egotism, hype, ineptitude, money manipulation, and, at base, a fundamental lack of concern for humanity."
How very sad for us all.
Maybe the Rabbi should get a humanitarian award!
If you don't know Glenn, he is a wonderfully sincere person... yeah, he's a touch weird around the edges, but he's one of the most out-going, genuine persons I've ever known. His statement is a heartbreaker.
