The first blogger I ever read was from Norway. She was my window on that country, that culture. Most of my opinions of the place are based on things she wrote, things she told me in our online conversations, and on the opinions I formed of her. We haven't been in touch in several years, so I've also fallen out of touch with Norway.

Today's attacks in Oslo and on a youth camp are astonishing, horrifying, staggering. The notion that international terrorists may have fixed their sights on this beautiful, peaceful, and eminently civilized country is horrible to consider. The possibility that these may have been the acts of a lone homegrown madman is even more horrible.
