9 Days left to suggest carnival components

Carnival is scheduled. But only two persons have suggested posts. Not to worry, I have already found 231 links...  And more to come.

I find it strange how I draw the line. For I have looked at -what - 100 posts a day - that's 2200 this month.

What distinguished the 231 from the 2200? Where are the other 90%?

November, Movember, was a busy month - so many elections, and selections, and failures in various issues of polity. But these - if there were posts - I did not find them or they did not qualify (in this redactor's eyes) as related to Biblical Studies. Not that they could not have - where are the posts on selecting and leaders? Is there nothing in the ancient history that would inform us about election? Is there nothing that informs some about polity but that should not have informed decisions today? Is there nothing on closed-door selection committees? And how would one phrase these without special-pleading? - though a dose of special-pleading is always welcome in a carnival.

So - posters - apply the Bible you know so well to the day's events - let's see if they qualify as BS.

in the meanwhile, for my friends to the south

Happy Thanksgiving.
