A Love by any other name...
I complete the story that is found a few minutes into the podcast.
After my vanity and ambition had me figuratively stuck on the podium, in the panel in which I palyed a role of a scientist, not a Rabbi, and could not contradict religiously offensive material being spoken by a fellow panelist, rertribution and a lesson came fast. As I exited the venue and went into one of those Manhattan underground garages to reclaim my car, it would not start. A tow truck could not pass thorugh the narrow entrance and the proprietor would not help me in any way.
Now I was literally stuck.
A worker quietly whispered to me that the owner lieaves at 4 AM, and then he will help. I waited on the cold Manhattan street until then, and he pushed my car out onto the street with another vehicel. Then I was able to get a tow truck.
G-d is the Great Teacher!
