" I [Micha] once argued that Avraham Avinu's "ha'af tispeh tzadiq im rasha" --
throwing out a rhetorical question in complaint to the RBSO [Ribono shell Olam (about Sedom
et al) was not only justifiable anger, but actually *laudible* anger at the RBSO!"
Sometimes a prophet or saint needs anger to attack injustice.
And sometimes this can be an over-reaction
Sammy the Gabbai tells me this story.
I onced asked "Speedy" to daven mincha. Speedy said tachanun a bit too fast
So "Aryeh" got up and yelled at Speedy - in front of the whole shul - to "slow down". Indeed - Aryeh had a right to be upset but not a right to humiliate Speedy in public! Aryeh should have either addressed him quietly or later on privately. But Aryeh's
Temper clouded his judgment
