Tova Mirvis strikes back

Eric Alterman, in another episode of wanderings in the blogverse, has pointed out Tova Mirvis's reply to Wendy Shalit in The Forward. This was a good reply because it emphasized the power of the imagination, and not to worry about what "they" are saying about us. My response was more literal. (I posted it on dKos but it really belongs here.) Tova Mirvis a) created idealistic characters in "The Outside World", notably Bryan/Baruch, and b) has the subject of individuals who worship Judaism as a tradition, but are not worried about closeness to Hashem. These individuals do exist.
