@SethJ I never understood the Ashkenazik solution of putting the Mezuzah angled. It doesn't seem to satisfy either position by being at an angle.

@DoubleAA Hmm. I guess I never viewed true empricism as a real valid opposition to Rationalism. Even the empricist must beilieve in the appeal of an idea to the mind.

comment What is Ruach Rah
@Yehoshua He made no mention of another source. However, I was just thinking about the premise of your question for a "Makor". Any source that would explain Ruach Rah as a currently identifiable physical phenomena like germs would have to be pretty recent coinciding with medical/scientific discovery. If that were the case the "Mekor" I would imagine would be equally as qualified as Rav Soloveichik to provide an explanation. Therefore, wouldn't really add much other than having another great mind agree.
