On July 12, 2014, the big fuss was something about immigrant children seeking asylum and how local people were defying the feds. That was last week’s “big fuss.” (Background: Immigrant Trailer Deaths!, Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of July 12, 2014.)
The weekly “big fuss” arrives like clockwork at the close of the week. This week, on a Thursday, “big fuss” first reared its ugly head while I was innocently watching the dreaded Russia Today network. “Oh my goodness!” suddenly cried the RT anchor. “A commercial airliner has crashed in Ukraine!” Thereafter calm news coverage disappeared and there were constant interruptions for “latest updates.”
And so, after the news segment ended at about 7:30 pm Moscow time, I thought I could at last re-enter relative calm and watch Abby Martin’s show, “Breaking the Set.” It all began normally enough. Ms. Martin began a rant about how a Wikipedia entry had called her a “Russian propagandist.” She then went on to claim that the “Russian propagandist” charge had been traced to someone in the halls of the U.S. Congress.
“We interrupt for another plane crash update!” excitedly interrupted RT. At that point I turned off Russia Today for the time being. I really wanted to hear what Abby Martin had to say about Wikipedia being infiltrated by questionable persons. But the weekly “big fuss” had arrived!
If it’s Tuesday, then this must be Belgium. Travelers on a whirlwind tour of Europe lost their sense of location. Where were they? They realized that since it was Tuesday, they must be in Belgium. Similarly, I knew that the eruption of the weekly “big fuss” meant it was either Thursday or Friday. In “Tuesday, So Must Be Belgium”, the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of November 27, 2012, I wrote about how the days can be compartmentalized according to “crisis” eruptions. Monday is the “Anything Can Happen Day.” From there the trend is for a crescendo of crisis to escalate, then culminate on Friday. In the Saturday compartment, there is never any crisis. The Saturday compartment barely knows even the word “crisis.”
So, entering the Saturday compartment now, here is some info on yesterday’s “big fuss.”
Katie Zavadski, apparently with either New York Magazine or Daily Intelligencer, reports that some people say the real target was Vladimir Putin’s airplane, not Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Putin’s plane crossed MH17’s path near Warsaw, less than an hour apart. From a distance, the two airliners are of a similar size and coloring. Putin had been flying back from a visit to Brazil. In this version, the two airplanes got mixed up and Vladimir Putin narrowly avoided being assassinated. 
Why did the MH17 pilot fly above restricted airspace, and just what, if any instructions, did Kiev air control give the pilot in the minutes before the tragic explosion? This question is asked by the “Zero Hedge” web site. 
“A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off,” reports the Associated Press. Igor Girkin reportedly has heard that “a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” and that they were “drained of blood and reeked of decomposition.” 
The “big fuss” of the week: you can know the day by when it erupts. And what will next week’s sudden “big fuss” be? Look to Ersjdamoo’s Blog for next week’s “big fuss” report.
