Talking Politics

Wednesday, April 25, 2007

I think we all know (or should when we're sober) that talking politics in other countries is simply foolish. I've lived and worked in England for years, can correctly choose quid or pounds depending on the circumstances, and have read a LOT of Eng. Lit. But I really don't understand their political system in my bones.

But this was reinforced lately by two seperate instances:

First I was flying into India and reading Churchil's early biography when one of my fellow passengers said "You had better not let them see that in customs." Well, duh, but that never occured to me.

Second, on FlyerTalk someone started a thread about Canada having their own "No Fly" list. Predictably the most amazing mis-statements on US *and* Canadian politics started to fly.

Me, from now on I'm sticking to the superiority of baseball over cricket and why it's soccer and not football. :-)

    Lol. I got some strange looks flying from St Louis to Chicago while reading "The Assasins" by Oliver North.

    People look at you all weird and then scoot over a little.
