When you live in a land of milk and honey, coping with a little sour cream can be a real triumph.

It is a pity these stories of the triumph of the human spirit did not appear a day or so earlier, on Memorial Day, to help inspire us.

In Sweden, for example, academics are squabbling over calls to match their marking schemes with standardised Euro-grades, from A (excellent) to F for Fail. Students risk psychological harm, they fret, if visibly labelled successes and failures. Much better to stick with a two-level system of pass and fail, or (if you will insist on such elitism) one extra level of “pass with distinction” for the top quartile. Jacob Christensen, a political scientist at a Swedish university, Umea, suggested recently that Swedes “are expected to descend into deep psychological disorder as soon as they encounter disappointments in everyday life”.

From last week’s Economist.

Though I think maybe the Swedish system has merit in an already grade inflated world.
