I facetimed with my son in Norway today, who told me that the ex-husband of the Princess Martha Louise committed suicide Christmas Day. Chris tells me he was well-liked by the people. The articles say he had alcoholism, and what seems to be some sort of anxiety disorder, and the couple were divorced about three years ago.
He tells me people in Norway are very worried that we are about to have war in the Middle East because of Trump. I reminded him that the European press hates him almost as much as the American press does, and if there is no war, would love to portray it that we just barely avoided it, it was this close, and Trump is still dangerous. Chris also says that Norwegians are very concerned because of the joint naval exercises between Russia and China who are going to have WWIII and go after the US. I hadn't heard a thing about it, but there is an actual story.
This may not be Norwegians in general, but just the Norwegians in Tromso who Chris hangs around with. I keep that in mind.
