Re: the fat lady refused to sing
I am a Canadian, but you have the right perception of the U.S. Only a truly
democratic country wuld bare their problems to the world in the searchfor the
president who will their representative for the whole world.. If that same
difficulty arises in Canada, we would have much thesame process I am sure. We
share a common border with them which we cross freely, and they are good
neighbours althugh sometimes they think we are just the land of ice and snow. I
have three grandchildren, a great grandson and I call him my little Yank, all
born in Mass, USA, and how I love him.
Bye for Now
