"Run by a gun zealot who's too blinded by the NRA" - Sam Penney of

Mom's scheduled to stay in Sweden another few weeks (she's actually in Estonia right now with her cousin) but Dad is supposed to fly back tomorrow - on British Air through Heathrow to JFK.


To say he's not happy - or that we are a bit nervous - is an understatement.

Anyway, there are a variety of flights out there - including ones through Zurich, Montreal, and Frankfurt but he's being cheap and doesn't want to lose his ticket and have to pay $1500 for another (and its not like he's in poverty or anything).

Geeze, talk about annoying stubborn old people.

Anyway, I know there was a bit of talk in the 'ol blogsphere not too long ago about Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson's speach that Muslim's would soon be the majority in Sweden. My swedish cousins were completely unaware of this - and still insist that there are not many muslims in Sweden - and I was wondering if anyone has a link to the speach or any more info on it.
