Scandinavian language is no worse than some of the others I hear in Lawrence. Maybe those other people should also go back to where their language is spoken. Lawrence would be a rather thinly populated town.

I lived and taught in Minnesota where a lot of the Scandinavian people live. It was the cleanest part of the United States that I have lived in.

The school lunches were delicious but I never ate the lutefisk (fish soak in lye). The desserts were decadent but I ate them anyway.
