Subject: RE: BS: ClintonHammond & His I-75 Misadventure
Well, CH, I'm glad you and your wife were unharmed. I recall breaking down on my first trip up to Alaska in British Columbia, and everyone who stopped and asked if there was anything they could do to help had Canadian plates (there were other plates not so thoughtful). I have no illusions that our Canadian neighbors (to the North when i'm in Massachusetts, to the Southeast when I'm in Alaska) are regular folks with their own damn attitudes and even their own history. They don't agree with us, they sometimes sound as if they feel superior to us. But I love Canada. I love the Peace Bridge. I love the fish 'n chips invariably prepared by Greek immigrants. I love the beautiful Ukrainian lasses from Vancouver I got a chance to folk dance with. I love La Bottine Souriante the Frantics, The Royal Canadian Air Farce, Rich Little and even William Shatner.

I have not forgotten that Canadians helped rescue some of our people held hostage in Iran before the rest were let go.

I sincerely hope you guys are able to keep it together.

Thanks for the kind words.
