Our American Friends

When I was a kid America was great. My family was mostly made up of Anglophiles but still as I kid I knew America was GREAT. The land of spray cheese and the Electric Company and all manner of technology. The inventor of watermelon flavoured bubble gum and Lollipop bars I could walk 'across the line' to buy in Point Roberts.

When I was an adult in 2001 I did my Masters degree practicum in the UK. I was relieved. Ahhhh, this is more like it. Europe. North America suddenly seemed to be the New Old world. Canada fine. US not so great.

Today. Well, I might have things to covet across the line more often and again.

Even with Obama's win, I'd still rather have a hobnob than an Oreo.

It does sort of make you believe in the magic of that country again, doesn't it?

So are you turning away from our "independence for cascadia" project?
