The hagiography ("story of a saint") tells us that Norbert was a bit like Governor Walker in being re-called and then "re-welcomed" albeit not by popular acclaim but because the pope and emperor desired it:
"It was on the trip accompanying Theobald to his marriage, that Norbert was spotted by Emperor Lothair and chosen as bishop of Magdebourg. Legend has it the porter refused to let Norbert into his new residence, assuming he was a beggar. When the crowd pointed out to the flustered porter that this was the new bishop Norbert told the porter, "You were right the first time." Norbert carried the love of reform that he had found in his own life to his new diocese. As usual, this made him many enemies and he was almost assassinated. Disgusted with the citizens desire to keep to their old ways, he left the city, but was soon called back -- not because the citizens missed him but because the emperor and the pope pressured them."

They also like brats, cheese and the Packers. And usually they are wine guys instead of beer.
