comment Baby boy's MOTHER as the sandek(et)
It's not nice to make fun of Rav Menashe HaQoton even if he did argue with Rav Moshe.

comment Rav Nissan Kaplan - biography
Rav Nissin Kaplan is NOT a Rosh Yeshiva in the Mir, although he is one of the Rebbeim there. The Rosh Yeshivas in the Mir are Rabbi Laizer Yudel Finkel, Rav Refoel Shmuelevitz, Rav Yitzchok Ezrachi and Rav Binyamin Carlebach. Rav Nissan Kaplan was never officially a mashgiach for American Avreichim in the Mir (the Mashgiach is Rav Aharon Chodosh), but he is a known Mussar personality and does give Mussar Shiurim in for Mir students, especially for Avreichim. I learn in the Mir, I'll try to ask someone tomorrow about this information if I remember...
