Yes, but as we learn this week, the widow is in bed with the guy who is
trying to sell real estate to the norwegians (laura's dad's boss).  I 
think she want to get hold to the land which belongs to the mill for
real estate development.  At this point in time, I can't see that it has
anything to do with laura.

I have many friends who are recent arrivals in the US.  They tend to have
very good literary english -- they understand and easily pick up english
from books, magazines, etc.  Most learned english before they came here.
The problem is that they know very few colloquialisms, and as a result 
their speach seems a bit broken...
