Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Could Someone Please Explain...

1) When did we decide to start Advent on Oct 1?

Admittedly I'm not a religious person so I could easily have missed the Diet or the Synod making it ecumenical law to start putting out the holiday goodies en masse. Presumably the liturgical vestments are now no longer that lovely dark purple but are now red, green, orange and black to better reflect the season.

2) If North Korea has Weapons of Mass Destruction and Iraq most emphatically did NOT then why are the troops in the Mideast?

3) Why are we NOT calling that mess in Iraq a "Civil War"?

4) Is it really just coincidence that gas prices continue to fall the closer we get to election day?
