comment Bringing in Yom Tov Sheni early
Sounds like he says the Taz 489:10 and Aruch HaShulchan 668:6 both disagree that one can start the second day early. I'll have to look at this in more detail, but this teshuva is a great starting point.

Note that this is similar to judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/6999/…, but here I'm asking for sources for something that he just assumes.

comment Minimum Number of Days before Hefsek Tahara: Sephardi vs. Ashkenazi
I think my rav was telling me that I shouldn't get my hopes up that it would happen every time, since many times women actually do bleed for 5 days.

I've definitely seen it on Israeli products imported to the US.

comment Kiddushin by a man who has the din of a חייב מיתה
Is this question confusing someone who's chayav mitah (by simply committing some aveirah) with someone who had a g'mar din (the beit din rendered a verdict of death). The likelihood of being this being a question is small (because the condemned would have to escape) but the Gemara in perek ben sorer u'moreh does discuss that situation.

Thank you for such a helpful answer. I wasn't expecting to see this much effort go into verifying that the references match.

@GershonGold: I've edited to clarify my question. I don't think a sentence will help.
