    What better time than now for a true story about elves.

    Iceland’s hidden elves delay road projects

    REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) – In this land of fire and ice, where the fog-shrouded lava fields offer a spooky landscape in which anything might lurk, stories abound of the “hidden folk” – thousands of elves, making their homes in Iceland’s wilderness.

    So perhaps it was only a matter of time before 21st-century elves got political representation.

    Elf advocates have joined forces with environmentalists to urge the Icelandic Road and Coastal Commission and local authorities to abandon a highway project building a direct route from to the tip of the Alftanes peninsula, where the president has a home, to the Reykjavik suburb of Gardabaer. They fear disturbing elf habitat and claim the area is particularly important because it contains an elf church.

    The project has been halted until the Supreme Court of Iceland rules on a case …

    Maybe we should get the elves to advise on how to get real “political representation.”

    BTW, this is not the first time issues about the “hidden folk,” have affected planning decisions.
