Looks like Wikipedia has a celebrity fan, as Jessica Alba invoked it in her battle with Bill O’Reilly:
I find it depressing that in the midst of perhaps the most salient time in our country’s history, individuals are taking it upon themselves to encourage negativity and stupidity. Last week, Mr. Bill O’Reilly and some really classy sites (i.e.TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country. I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people…it’s so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweden_during_World_War_II if you want to see what I was referring to. I appreciate the name calling and the accurate reporting. Keep it up!! [ref]
Jessica had me when she used “salient” properly.
Odd fact: I happen to be well versed in the Switzerland/Sweden conundrum. As a delegate on an American-Swiss Foundation trip in 2000, this was a common lament from the Swiss side, that IKEA and meatballs were too often wrongly associated with the tiny Alpine nation.
