comment Why is a Haftorah recited on fast days?
@Fred More likely related to Megilla 30b. Not reciting Aneinu in the morning is a custom in only some communities and of relatively recent vintage.

comment Birth Bracha Question
@msh210 Yes. Quite the Chiddush about a case that existed 2000 years ago but wasn't mentioned until 200 years ago. The silence is indeed deafening.
