IT WAS the day after Yom Kippur. We were in a post-High Holy Day kind of euphoria.

I was looking forward to my usual quiet breakfast. All my life, I have read during breakfast, focused and unaware of all else. Then, when I joined The Jerusalem Post in 1953, we received free homedelivered copies of four or five dailies, all in Hebrew except, of course for the Post.
