I agree with Nick. The only time I've been hassled (and I have, worse than
when I went to Romania), was when I happened to reply that yes, I was being
paid to speak. Canada seems to be ultra-sensitive to American
carpet-bagging. Not that I can blame them, but frankly I think Canada has
sent more talent our way than otherwise. Do I really need to name them all?
You people just need to stop being so cool. Okay?
