There’s a great Rashi on some gemara, somewhere, that in my germ-addled state I can’t quite dig up from the recesses of my brain, and my searching skills (google and my CD ROM) are not helping today. It’s the one in which Rashi says, basically, “people who make a big fuss out of going to the humra when the kula is perfectly reasonable are silly.” Something in that general gist. I’m pretty sure it’s quite famous. Anybody know what I’m talking about? Where is it, and what’s the exact quote? (Actually, if you tell me where it is, I can probably find the quote myself….)
