Borrowing People in Sweden

Helen's favourite Nordic country has got a new idea. Now they are allowing you to 'check out' people from a library to have a coffee with and who...

... are meant to give people "a new perspective on life," the library said in a statement. "There are prejudices about everything," Noren said. "This is about fighting those prejudices and promoting coexistence."

Sounds like a reasonably good idea until you look at the list of people provided so far...

... to borrow a Muslim, a lesbian, or a Dane. The people available to be "borrowed" also include a journalist, a gypsy, a blind man, and an animal rights activist.

As a reader on this blog points out - they've missing a conservative middle-age male :)

I feel sorry for the blind man being lumped in with that lot.

Opps my bad. But it is a sign of our success. We are now duplicating articles just like /. :)
