Montréal #4: we (you, me and everyone else who reads VIN) have been blessed by "ה with a unique ability not shared with the rest of His creations: the power to pick and to choose what we want to read and to ignore those items that are distasteful to us.

Please use that G-d given power in future, Montréal #4. I guarantee that you will feel much better for it.
