    Oh, the guilt.

    Just this week, this exchange took place.

    Mark - "Take our BHB for example, what good does his skepticism bring him?"

    Jewish Philosopher - "Plenty. At very least he never needs to feel guilty about anything".

    He's absolutely right. Twenty five years ago, I was absolutely wracked with guilt; how I could spend New years day watching the Honeymooners Marathon, episode after hilarious episode, and not sit in Bais Medrash for at least a few hours.

    Today - no guilt at all.
