On my way in to work this morning I stopped off at the MIT Card office in the basement of W20 and got an MIT Alumni Card. (I guess that makes me an "alumni".) I figure it might come in useful in a few weeks.

It made me think back to 20 years ago when they took our pictures for our meal services card, and we could borrow a stuffed Opus the Penguin doll to perch on our shoulder when they took the picture. ID cards had a sense of humor back then.

Ma'ariv (an Israeli newspaper) reports that someone who has been studying for conversion to Judaism under Chabad Lubavitch auspices has been turned down by the religious court on the basis that his belief that Rabbi Schneerson is still alive and is the messiah is incompatible with core Jewish beliefs. (At least, that's how I understand it.) The case is now on appeal.

Finally, someone in power has said it!
