comment Tahanun on Superbowl Sunday in competing market?
@IsaacMoses According to this site Purim and Superbowl Sunday have never and will never overlap until they change the date of the Superbowl.

comment Midrashim concerning Balaam?
Not midrash, but interesting - livius.org/de-dh/deir_alla/deir_alla_inscr.html - Bilaam was known to the non-Jewish world and had non-Jewish traditions about him.

comment Surviving the zombie apocalypse?
The third source should probably have been the answer by itself, but long-winded-ness, I hear, is the source of wit.

comment May one love a non-Jew?
This might be better as a comment to the answer you're referring to. Alternatively, if you summarize what is said, that can stand as its own answer.

+1. But what about those who don't hold by the Ohr haChaim?

comment “I never saw a tzaddik be abandoned…” - how do we understand this?
@DoubleAA also, I'm more upset by the implications of misinterpreting this (wealth has some correlation with righteousness or a very narrow definition of tzadik) than I am about altering the (admittedly strong) minhag.

comment “I never saw a tzaddik be abandoned…” - how do we understand this?
@DoubleAA Because I'm not wise enough to see the metaphorical truth in it, and I therefore cannot honestly propagate it.
