What a tragedy that has occurred in Norway, all because someone sees no value in "multiculturalism," a word that is defined also by religious tolerance and racial equality. This makes me reflect upon our own country and some of the racial comments I encounter from individuals and the divisive rhetoric I hear on our airways. Fortunately, we are a country founded on the principles of equality for all, and these rights are protected by our Constitution and enforced by the court of law. It has taken time to assimilate the many ethnic groups within our society and right the wrongs (some by war)

My Crimson King Norway maples are slowly dying, one by one. I see trunk cracks but can't see any disease or insects. How can I save the rest? Norway maples in general are notorious for strangling themselves to death. The roots often encircle and crisscross over the base of the trunk, cutting off nutrients and water from the root system. Death can take decades but often happens just when trees reach a pleasing size and shape. A dead giveaway is when there is no natural flare on a side of the trunk base; instead, the trunk is flat, going into the soil.

The knee-jerk, anti-Muslim theorizing in the immediate aftermath of Friday's terrorist attacks in Norway was not the American media's finest moment. In fact, it was a moment perfect for mockery, as Stephen Colbert deftly demonstrated on "The Colbert Report" last night. Colbert targeted both the left and the right as he used clips from  MSNBC, Fox News, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and CNN to illustrate his point.  "There is a specific jihadist connection here," a Washington Post blogger wrote.  "Al-Qaeda's Ayman Al-Zawarihi has repeatedly singled out Norway," the Wall Street Journal wrote in an editorial.  "You know the Wall Street Journal is accurate, because as a Murdoch paper, they've got proven ways to get information," Colbert joked, referring toNews of the World's hacking scandal.

Norway deserves the support of all nations in its quarrel with Iran, which concerns the right of Iranian authorities to order the murder of someone in Norway or anywhere outside Iran.Iran has no such right. For it to act as if it did violates international law, Norwegian sovereignty, common decency and respect for humanity. Politics is no excuse. Neither is religious devotion.The incident flows from the fatwa, or decree, by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, spiritual leader of Iran, in 1989, calling on believers to kill the Indian-born British writer, Salman Rushdie, for blasphemy in his novel, "The Satanic Verses."

Norway has higher standards of living, welfare, environmental protection, agricultural subsidy and women's advancement than the 12-nation European Union, supported by oil and gas wealth and fish-rich coastal waters. Why would Norway share its wealth to obtain lower standards?Why, indeed? It won't. The negative vote in the advisory referendum on joining the European Union, Monday, insures that the parliament will keep Norway out of the EU when Finland, Sweden and Austria join on Jan. 1. It was probably the wrong decision, but only time will tell.

Then his team lost the tournament opener to Ireland. And then his goalkeeper was ejected early yesterday, his star player was hampered by a hamstring injury and Italy had to play nearly 70 minutes with 10 players.

You might not want to spend a lot of time in Norway in January, but listening to a couple of hours of Norwegian music in a Howard County church sounds inviting. The Orchestra of St. John's vicariously takes you to Norway with "A Winter's Concert - Norwegian Moods," being performed on Sunday, Jan. 13 at 4 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City. "Everybody thinks of Norway as a cold place with fjords and icy scenery, but not as one of the most important centers of music," observes Ronald Mutchnik, artistic director of the Orchestra of St. John's.

Norwegian terrorism suspect Anders Behring Breivik may have attained what he hoped for - worldwide notoriety. The young man has shaken Norway to its roots and out of its complacency. Apparently, for a whole decade, he functioned as a one-man sleeper cell, meeting his mother once a week for dinner, blogging incessantly, playing violent computer games and writing a manifesto about what he perceived as Europe's cultural annihilation by the liberal political class that has been bringing a lot of Muslims to the continent as immigrants.

Are the French getting their Tea Party on? That's what an outsider looking at the country's first-round presidential voting results might have been led to believe. But, as with many things French, the reality is très compliquée . The weekend vote knocked out all but the two candidates long expected to square off in the May 6 final: Socialist Francois Hollande (28.6 percent) and incumbent center-right President Nicolas Sarkozy (27.2 percent). This isn't the story, though. The most striking news is the 17.9 percent score by Marine Le Pen's National Front party.

It is with disgust that I put down The Sun after reading Ron Smith's column ("Norway murder compounded by ineptitude," July 29). Scandinavia seems to be one of the few places on the planet not fueled by violence. Perhaps those nations have some lessons to share with our country. Open any daily newspaper or listen to any newscast in the U.S. and your senses are pounded with the violence prevalent in every city and state. Our country is a laughing stock as our elected officials behave like spoiled adolescents for all the world to witness.

The first aftershock from the mass slayings inNorway was that the evil deed was done by a native Norwegian, a tall, blond man in a police uniform, not by some Islamist angered at the country's support for America's "war on terror. " Thirty-two-year-old Anders Behring Breivik surrendered without resistance on Utoya Island, where he had spent more than an hour shooting youngsters at a Labor Party conference. The Associated Press reports that the gunman himself was astonished thatNorway's Special Forces didn't arrive long before they did. The second aftershock came with the full telling of that lengthy delay, a tragic comedy of errors, beginning with the fact that Norwegian Delta Force police officers made the trip by car - they have no helicopters - and had to be rescued by civilian craft when their boat broke down during the 60-second trip from the mainland to the island.

LES SAISIES, France -- Vegard Ulvang bagged his third gold medal of the Winter Olympics yesterday as Norway gave its rivals another lesson in cross country skiing.The Norwegians' victory in the men's 4x10-kilometer relay was so crushing that anchorman Bjorn Daehlie, winner of the 15K race Saturday, humiliated the rest of the field by skiing across the finish line backward and waving the Norwegian flag.It was the first time Norway had triumphed in the event since 1968 and the victory made Ulvang the first Norwegian to take three cross country golds at one Games, a fact largely due to the increased number of men's races this year.

Photo credit: Reuters With a year to go until the London Olympics, organizers are promising to take another look at whether a solitary terrorist could cause tragedy. From the AP : At least 93 people were killed when a Norwegian with right-wing views set off a bomb in Oslo and went on a gun-rampage at a youth camp. Olympics Minister Hugh Robertson says "we need to see what the direct cause of that is, but that will always cause anybody to look and to re-examine their own security plans.
