Breakdown in the Western Alliance 

Here's a story the US media seems to have missed entirely: Danish and Canadian nationalists are up in arms over a territorial dispute.

No, seriously.

These guys have everything you need to know.

UPDATE: As this comprehensive list of all known international territorial disputes shows, the Canada/Denmark kerfuffle (also known as the "Hans Island Foofaraw") is the only such conflict which is in any way hilarious. All the others are sad or serious.

UPDATE: Long-lost dorm neighbor (and fellow father-of-a-daughter-named Lucy) Adam Bonin has generated some commentary on the argy-bargy on his eclectic blog. Check it out.
