Sahlin’s majority, Bildt, and Whiskeytown
You will find another article about the myths surrounding Mona Sahlin here. I will address this whole topic in my editorial on Monday.
Carl Bildt’s problems even made it into The Economist’s useful “Politics this week”:
Prosecutors in Sweden began an inquiry into share options given to Carl Bildt, the country's foreign minister (and former prime minister), when he was on the board of a firm linked to Russia's Gazprom.And just because the prosecutor now says that Bildt did not do anything illegal does not mean that this is over. This is a political – not an economical – issue.
One weird thing with YouTube is all these covers you find with lonely guys playing your favorite song on guitar in front of a video camera. Today I was looking for stuff with Whiskeytown and found this version of “Houses on the Hill” and I found it… almost quite ok. Or am I just too crazy about this song? [The line “Eisenhower sent him to war, he kept a picture in his pocket that was closest to his heart” is great, anyway].
