For all those ehrliche CR posters who are totally stressed out about Covid, masks, Antifah and of course the presidential election, the maalachim in shamayim in charge of interplanetary affairs have felt your pain and are sending your way a celestial diversion just in time. NASA has announced that Asteroid Number 2018VP is hurtling towards the Earth at more than 25,000 miles mph and could enter the Earth’s atmosphere on November 2nd, just hours before those davening vasikim head for the polls. However, not to worry (or even bother with a kpaital tehillim).
NASA assures us that the President will mobilize the new SPACEFORCE and use his all-powerful sharpie (aka the Alabama Hurricane Pen) to draw a wavy line on the projected path of the asteroid to assure that if it does survive entry through the atmosphere, it will land somewhere off the California coast (plus or minus 100 miles either way). However, if you look up at the sky on your way out of shul that morning, you may see a siman m’shamayim to vote for Joe.
Gadol, watch a ballgame, read a book, take a walk. Let politics have a rest. You will vote for your candidate, I’ll vote for mine. Leave petty stories aside.

Election Day is the 3rd
only Republicans on the 3rd, Democrats on the 4th
