Last night's post about Canada's woes reminded me of the only other funny thing I ever read about our northern neighbors. It's an old joke, and it goes like this:
Poor Canada. Back in the '50s, everyone thought they'd have an American economy, British government, and French culture. By the '70s, they had a British economy, a French government, and American culture.
Well, at least they don't (yet) have an Italian government.
