Small Addendum to the Case of Cardinal Sin

My first name is a trribute to Rabbi Joshua Loth Liebman (, who aided my father, before Liebman tragically died at age 41, eight months before I was born.

My middle name is the Hebrew form of my paternal grandfather's name, "Wolf". BTW, Wolf Blitzer, when writing in Hebrew, uses the byline "Zev Baraq".) It now can also mean "Zero-Emission Vehicle".

My last name comes from the Hebrew "to join", after my eponymous male-line ancestor, Levi (Genesis 29:34). A similar Russian name is derived from "Leo" (see Anna Karenina); and it could also be derived from the Anglo-Saxon "Leofynn", meaning "good friend". However, the same letters in Latin mean to "lift" or "elevate", as in "Magnetic Levitation".

So, I have devised a Magnetic-Levitation (MagLev) transportation system, using Zero-emmission vehicles, on which you could ride in your own car at high door-to-door speeds. See Maybe it will join people by making it easier to travel to see eeach other.
