Royal Dunkling 

Denmark's newest little crown prince will be baptized today, so if you'd like to see how a nation that prides itself on its egalitarianism treats a royal baptism, just sniff around DR for gratuitous coverage (if you're out of the country... if you're in Denmark you'll have to run outside and bury yourself in the snow and ice to avoid coverage).

Denmark's odds-makers wouldn't even lay odds on the name Christian being assigned to the little dunkling, so confident are the experts that this will be his name. (Almost all Danish kings for quite some time have been Frederiks or Christians.)

I'd like to see a King Moe, so I'll be sitting by the television with my "Moe!" pennant... as usual.

Staying the Course 

Denmark, the world's most ethical, most civilized country (see comments a few posts below if you need an explanation), is staying the course in Iraq.  So that must be the ethical, civilized thing to do.... six million Danes can't be wrong!  (I'm sorry, Lasse, it's all in good fun.)

Mmmmmm, Human Flesh... 

Cannibalism in Sweden. In case you were wondering.

(I've been swamped but felt like I had to post something other than comments, if only to allow people somewhere else to comment. But I was damned if I was gonna talk about Saturday's baptism of the little prince.)
