Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Daily Kos: At least 84 dead in Norway shooting.

Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Norwegian prime minister and leading international politician, was at Utøya on the day of the shootings, but left the island an hour before the shooter appeared there.

She was addressing the young political activists. The sitting prime minister was scheduled to appear on the island on Saturday.

There is speculation that he had planned to attack the seat of government, and then attack the island while Mrs. Brundtland was there.

He was cold and methodical as he carried out his killing spree - the tales told by survivors are horrifying.

It is alleged that the shooter years ago lauded the two Columbine shooters in comments on the net forum of another leading Norwegian newspaper - it is not confirmed that the nick used there is his, but the comments by that writer match his many other comments on other forums.

nick peewee in the newspaper VG:

"If you don't use your majorities, you lose your majorities."

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
