A Good Job
William Safire, who retires his op-ed column in two weeks (boo-hoo), delivers another nice drasha on Sefer Iyyov, reminding us that suffering (tsunami, e.g.) isn't so much a question about God, as it is a question about us. Read it here.
You may recall that Rabbi Soloveitchik makes this point (but does a better job) in the opening chapter of Kol Dodi Dofek. Safire does, however, give us the following great quote from Virginia Woolf, who wrote in her journal, "I read the Book of Job last night--I don't think God comes well out of it."
