Norway's new minister of culture is a 29 year old female Muslim. That's quite cool in itself but she also wrote an article earlier asking "why does there stand so many men between me and God?"
also, Jonas Gahr Støre will probably be Norway's new PM in 2017. He just got moved from the foreign ministry to the health ministry, which means that a) he will be more available in the election campaign next year. b) he'll diversify his administrative experience and c) if he manages to get through the next year without getting unpopular, he's Jesus.
