Iceland: Wrath of the Gods

April 17, 2010

Iceland: Wrath of the Gods!

The earth of Iceland belches fire. Huge ash plumes blot out the sky. It this Ragnarök, Twilight of the Gods, the End of the World?

Nei (No). The Althingi Special Investigation Commission Report on Iceland’s financial collapse has reached Asgard. The eruption of Eyjafjallajokull is merely a concurring opinion from Odin, Thor, Loki and the gang. Think it’s excessive? Throw a few former government ministers and the principals of failed Glitnir Bank, Kaupthing Bank and Landsbanki into the volcano and the world can have its air lanes back.
