Short takes on Thursday developments

Events are moving faster than my ability to write them up, especially since I have another job. Here are capsules of items from yesterday, July 31. I expect to expand on these over the weekend.

One highlight is the account of how Shulamit's letter was delivered to the brothers, leading to their action to change their names in honor of their father.
