Crisis in Lefse-Land

The Norwegians are closing their consulate in Minneapolis.

This is not sitting well with the folks at Ingebritsen’s, an all-purpose Norwegian store on Lake Street. (I visit every time I am there — I am not so interested in the blood sausage, although there are several varieties available. Still, the food and folk art usually make their way into my luggage.)

However, Norwegians are still Norwegians. So they are mostly sulking in silence.
