just so there's no confusion
r stevens tries to suss out the differences between norway and sweden in the figure below. my family is both norwegian and swedish -- norsk og svensk -- though i've yet to visit either country. that said, i understand the original uggen farm was in norway and i typically self-identify as a norwegian-american. i won't quibble with the venn diagram, except i'd likely assign wasa bread to the swedish side of the figure and mors flatbrod to the norwegian side. perhaps somebody will be inspired to create a similar diagram distinguishing st. paul and minneapolis -- putting university avenue and the mighty mississippi smack dab in the middle. such a map might come in real handy during orientation week for our new faculty and grad students.
