NOW I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE A CANADIAN: Yesterday, coming through the local border in mid morning after a night of merriment and revelry, I was given the third, fourth and fifth degree by a new border guard. He asked what I did. When I replied "freelance writer," he continued "So, you don't have to work today?" (Apparently, the concept of "freelance" was a little too much for him.) He also asked if I had ever been arrested and damn near insinuated that the car I was driving was stolen.

This extra hastle was new to me but I have Canadian friends who get that sort of thing every time they cross the 49th parallel. No wonder some of them end up contemptuous of the U.S.
