    As a Canadian I must say that I was saddened by the fact that we were
not mentioned at all. It does seem that Canada inadvertently harbored some
of the terrorists but we are not alone in this--it looks like some of the
terrorists may have been fairly well traveled.
    We were out driving the other day counting American and Canadian flags.
Our unscientific survey concluded that they are in about equal numbers right
now. A local newspaper printed an American flag and many people (including
your truly) taped them in their livingroom windows.
