At some point in the past, Marc wrote: Am not sure I follow your point about moral matters. Let me put it this way, though: we pay a higher cost for the moral high ground -- look at the reaction of people like Cousin Bill to Chrétien's caution about going to war with Iraq. It's a simple fact of geopolitics that the US has substantial economic control over Canada, and that limits our "level ground" choices. It doesn't eliminate them, just makes them more expensive. -------------------- Actually, to tell you the truth, I was reacting without really thinking. I have, for so long, been trained (by myself) to do just assume American foreign policy is always correct. I have become much more Libertarian in my views of late, and do not really relish the thought of going to war with Iraq. I did not vote for Bush. I will never vote for a Bush. But that's not really what I wanted to write about here.
Wives make all the difference in the world. But I will admit, I am very happy that I went to Canada, even though it was for only about 7 hours or so. The remnants of Isidore didn't help, but I didn't even think about the PMs remarks while I was there. We had a great time, except that we weren't aware how early the Maid of the Mist and Journey Behind the Falls closed down, so we were unable to visit those. We will definitely have to go back. Niagara Falls are just amazingly beautiful. As we were walking, about the only thing my wife and I could say was "Sugoi" (great). WARNING: A somewhat delicate subject is about to come up. It doesn't violate the charter (at least I don't think it does) but some people may not want to read on. I do have a question about Rainbow Bridge. It would seem to me that anyone who wanted to commit suicide couldn't find a much more beautiful place to do it than right there. Absolutely no fence or anything to stop someone from jumping. I guess it could also be used for murder, though I assume cameras or something would make it almost impossible to get away with. But whose jurisdiction would that be? I guess it would be perfect for a murder / suicide deal. Marc, do you have any kind of statistics on how many people jump or attempt to jump? Bill Lewis AKA Cousin Bill [EMAIL PROTECTED] Guess what!
