Merry Christmas and some links

Merry Christmas to the readership of the new blog. I hope everyone made the most of the holiday.

Here’re some links

Augsberg in Bayern is being evacuated because a huge bomb was found from the war. One thing I want to know, why the hell are they evacuating on Christmas? If the bomb’s been there for 72 years, surly it can stay put until after new years. Is something else going on? Was there a terror threat?

92 dead as Russian plane carrying choir performers crashes into the Black Sea. Again, what is going on here? Civilian plane crashes, even Russian ones, are rare. Is some faction seeking to punish Russia for her glorious Syrian campaign? Did maybe the Turkish or Ukrainian navy shoot it down accidentally?  Remember TWA flight 800, navies occasionally shoot down civilian aircraft.
