We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
This re-counting of the Purim story is in accurate and several accounts
First in the story of Purim there is no mention of Jews who were kissing up to the ruler
Second it says that the Queen Astor set up a fast. Wrong she set up a feast and invited the king to attend and because she found such favor and his eyes he said he would ground her any wish. She said what would he do to someone who was determined to kill her and the king said he would get rid of that person. That’s when she revealed that his viziers Haman was going to kill all the Jews which would include her
Finally this person recounts that Esther and Mordecai took up storage to kill people. I don’t believe in anywhere in the story does it say that Esther picked up a sword. Furthermore the only people who were killed were the relatives of Haman.
Let’s be true to the text of a story if we are going to summarize it for others.
