I couldn't help but think of you these last days, because of what happened in Oslo and Utoya island. These is insanity, leaving us with no relevant words to handle it. But still, after the after-shock comes something else, namely the urgency - both intellectual and political - to deal with these horrors. Please, take my deepest compassion, solidarity and support.
A greeting from the Russian poet Alexander Skidan. Alexander has many Scandinavian friends, so it seems fair to share his words.
