Canada.

The only interesting thing that I know of in Canadian politics is the
Quebec separatists. My sympathy is with them all the way.

And if you're a typical american, it would also be true that you
couldn't write the history about any other country in the world, because
the typical american is ignorant of pretty much the entire world.

It's not something to celebrate...

Why would he have had reason to suspect that she wouldn't know what the
