    Canada is up because of the favorable exchange rate – especially New Hampshire, where there is no sales tax!

    Yup as of 1130amEST the US and Canadian dollars are equal !!!

    Nobody thinks living in America sucks.
    First that is empirically untrue although clearly many people here now and coming soon do not. Second the thinking behind the “headline” was actually geared more towards the not to subtle anti Americanism seen out and about and specifically towards the view that Bush,TSA,the dollar etc.etc are inhibiting travel to the USA. I’ll apologize for lacking clarity throughout my blog since it’s something I do to clear my head more than anything else.Thanks for stopping by.
