Why Norway Wins (Warning - Socialism!)
"Twenty-three medals, nine gold. From a country of 4.5 million people. That’s about one medal for every 200,000 Norwegians. If the United States hogged Winter Olympic glory in Norwegian proportions, it would have won…well, 1500 medals, which doesn’t make much sense, but certainly puts the standings in some perspective."The Hard and the Soft of Norwegians
An interesting, and exhausting, story in the NYTimes of a very tough Norwegian in WWII trying to escape to Sweden with the help of locals while being pursued by the Nazis. Almost unbelieveable what he goes through.
