Happy Easter!!!!

I wanted to send my best wishes everyone celebrating the holiday today. Last year, I wrote about “having the best Easter in the worst of times” due to the pandemic.  Notably, today the family is getting vaccinated with the first open vaccine site in Fairfax.  Like the holiday itself, it is a sign of hope and renewal. Last year, I had not seen my eldest son Ben (working at a hospital) for weeks at the height of the pandemic and I spent the holiday with caregivers and my mother in hospice in Chicago. I spent weeks with my Mom in my hometown. She then rallied and I am home with my family in McLean for this holiday.

Last night, we celebrated Passover on Friday with Leslie’s incredible Matzo ball soup and brisket. As usual, I passed on the gefilte fish and chopped liver.

Tonight we feast on a mustard and herb coated lamb (that I am cooking) and an assortment of delicious items.  We have some incredible desserts from a beautiful egg cake to a variety of pastries and cookies.  That is on top of the overflowing baskets left by the Easter Bunny.  (Even though my kids are older, they indulge me . . . or at least allow me to indulge them).

Happy Easter and Passover to everyone celebrating this weekend!

 

[Update: We went to the open vaccination location but it had a three block line that barely moved with hundreds of people. We finally bailed rather than spend hours in line on Easter Sunday but hope to get the family vaccinated soon.]

  1. I’m applauding this pastor in the below video on the proper way to conduct himself/ourselfs against Commie/Nazi types during Passover week.

    “One of Jesus’s last acts before his crucifixion was the incident we know as “the cleansing of the temple,” when he thew the money changers out of the Temple in Jerusalem for defiling God’s house. That image came inexorably to my mind when I saw the video of a Canadian pastor, through sheer force of will, sending eight COVID cops, many of them armed, out of the church.”

    Happy Easter!

    Enjoy it heartily before the communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) abolish it.

  3. Agree about chopped liver, but gefilte fish? It’s not just food. It’s medicine like chicken soup. Put enough horseradish on it and it will unclog your sinuses.

    Gut yom tov!

    1. Trump’s Easter message: “”Happy Easter to ALL, including the Radical Left CRAZIES who rigged our Presidential Election, and want to destroy our Country!”

      He is a class act!

  4. God bless you and your family Professor Turley! Your spread sounds as decadent as it does traditional. May truth and reason reign around your table as it does in your work, and (hopefully) personal life! In the whole History of our species we have never lived at such a fast-paced and exciting time as now! May the algorithms fall and (ultimately) the truth will be revealed. Sense and reason is not an animal but IT IS ALIVE!

  5. Happy Easter, JT (and to Darren).

  6. I was in an Episcopal Church in Ferguson sixty years ago speaking to a Spanish parent. I was on my knees. The Pastor was in the aisle.
    I said: “Hey Zeus. Full of juice. Don’t let your meat loaf “. The guys name was Zeus.
    The Pastor kicked me out.

    1. Oh. Zeus did not loaf in life. He was CEO of company that makes carts for the Easter Parades.

      1. And: “Hey Zeus” is how Jesus is pronounced in Spanish. The Pastor, named Rev. Price, knew that.

        1. Pope what’s his name is decrying the spending of money on def nse weapons. Stop buying crosses. That is a weapon. Jesus was hung on a cross. Don’t revere weapons of chris destruction.

  7. “Notably, today the family is getting vaccinated with the first open vaccine site in Fairfax. Like the holiday itself, it is a sign of hope and renewal. ”

    JT & et al,

    I’m sure people who have been injured & killed by these new Experimental Gene Therapies world be very interested in the opinions of lawyers & torts professors!!

    1st thing is they are not approved by the FDA as a Vaccine.

    2nd thing is those Experimental Gene Therapies will now no longer claim product liability immunity as it becomes widely known that there were/are safe & effective therapies that have long shown very high efficacy rate that are not Experimental.

  8. We had a “Down Easter” for half an hour this morning. A large basket with wide wings hovered over a church and dropped eggs down on the dummies going in.

  9. God bless you and your family, Professor Turley. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and perspective with the readers of your blog.

  10. Happy Passover, Easter, and Mahavira-Jayanti to those who celebrate. Belated happy Holi to those who celebrated. To those who will observe Ramadan, may you have an easy fast.
