Have to agree with you there, Greyson. It's absolutely terrifying to cross those small, uncontrolled crossings we have a lot of here in Norway as well. My worst nightmare is to have an engine breakdown on the railway. So when I have to cross railways I hesitate more than usual before Igo for it.

I think it's scary that our government would let Ahmadinejad come to this country to speak in one of our universities.

Sonny, with fear of walking into a political mine field: Isn't that what's democracy is all about? Showing that our western world is more open and civilized than his?

BTW I read over here that mr Ahmadinejad really was given a hard time by the University's Head Master.

Svein, you're right, but it still scares me that a terrorist is given an open forum on our soil. As far as Ahmadinejad getting a hard time goes, his friend Hugo is upset about that. Maybe the university should invite him over here so he can vent.

Maybe the government is keeping to that saying;

"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer."

Probably fits better in the famous sayings thread, but certainly applicable here.

That would be a great day for the students (and the media!):
A debate including Hugo, Fidel, Ahmadinejad and the Head Master as host

I think the head master did a very important and right thing - this is the way to focus on terrorism and human rights. Same thing goes for China: Putting the situation there on the agenda by having the Olympics there!

Oh Watsonville, what I wouldn't give for some delicious strawberries from there right about now. I used to complain about the price of fruit in California, but after moving to Minnesota, I would give anything to have those prices back. Of course I about fell over when I saw the price of fruit in Alaska. Our milk now is over $4 a gallon....what the.....we have the cows here.

Svein, I gun it to get over them quick. If there is a train coming, and I am going to be the first car in line, I will pull over way back and let everyone else get up there first. I don't know why the fear, because when I was little my cousin and I used to put pennies on a tracks to smash them. We would stand about 10 feet away from the track. Weird huh?

Folks,

can we please try to avoid the topic of Mr. A from I.

I'm sure we all agree that he isn't somebody we would like to have dinner with, but this is really on the edge of being too political for this place. IMHO.
