- Unfortunately, I was informed that Shabtai Miller passed away. ברוך דיין האמת.
- A community-wide gathering will take place due to recent tragedies.
- Joel Pollak lost in this ultra-liberal district we live in, which includes Northwestern University, but I applaud his effort. VIN has his concession speech.
