O Canada, My Stereotypical Land

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Salon Premium just added a few new benefits to signing up -- if you're in the US you can get US News and World Report, and Canadians can get Geist. Several Canadians contacted me today asking for help with the Geist signup, and their median courtesy level was great. There's a reason for the stereotype! If Salon ever branches out such that it has different brandings and content and branches in different countries, the way Reader's Digest does, I want to work in the Salon Canada office.

My family knows I've always had a thing for Canada. When I was a kid I hung a map of Canada on my ceiling above my bed. Color Me Other.
