Does not surprise me one [sign in to see URL] still has a sore back from the DEEP bow to the Saudi [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] was explained that the President simply was 'taller' than the KING and did not want him to feel [sign in to see URL] have been the same reason he he apologized to a European audience by saying, " America has been "arrogant" and "dismissive,"......would not want any of them to FEEL slighted either.... emoticon

Saudi? I only hear of emperor of Japan.

By the Scandinavian view (and on this Finland practically agrees) this is the greatest honor person can recieve. It kind of goes with the job that you're expected to go through the ceremonies, no matter president of what country you are (unless you're in prison for the reasons of getting the prize).

Besides they had to spend a good deal of money for extra security, he owed at least a full show for that.

As for the king in particular that's just Norwegians, most of Europe hardly noticed.
More of us are one way or other annoyed that he got the prize at all.

It's really cool how they have the text wrapping around the '5' in the flash ad. I wonder how they did that...

Sorry, carry on.
