Iceland / Ministers resigning like Lemmings.

It’s still colder in MPLS.


Above: Via the Morgenbladid website, staying warm in Reykjavik? As the flames flicker, Morgenbladid in English is reporting that multiple ministers are resigning
en masse. See this story from the UK’s Independent as well, former Prime Minister
Geir Haarde is anointed the “first global political casualty of the crunch.”

Kopf hoch, Iceland! At least it is warm there.


Above: See? Sunny skies and a balmy 37º? Ha, global economic crisis be damned!
It is 30º colder than that here AND, die liebe Bettina has just found a story from the
La Crosse Tribune which reveals the following obscure Minnesota laws.

A. It is illegal to trap, kill or molest squirrels in any way.
B. No one shall allow the mating of cattle or horses within the city except
in a properly enclosed building and out of the public view.

No offense, people of Iceland, it just seems well nigh impossible to stay abreast
of what is happening in this current climate. Please forgive this perhaps flippant
missive (and the poor pun). Oof. Time to visit Iceland (cool mark!).


Where will it all end? Here is a unique perspective from Dimitri Orloff (also see
this abstract from The New Yorker’s excellent recent article). Update: More from
Iceland via CNN International.
