My heart goes out to Norway right now. I have several friends in the country--you know some of them-- Mari, Siv, Cold as Heaven... there are more. My memory stinks. I also have Norwegian roots, and frequently point at the Scandenavian countries at those that have figured out the proper balance between letting people achieve and taking care of everybody... And people respond that... well they don't have our problems do they...
Sadly, in a tragic way, that became very untrue yesterday. And my heart goes out to them. I'd summarize it, but I think Mari does so much better a job--she is after all, THERE. I encourage you to check out her blog today: The Giraffability of Digressions.
