  In downtown Montreal the shopping malls are below ground, which in my opinion is a good place for them. A little deeper might not be a bad idea. I wanted a suit but was delivered a lecture by a little snip of a sales boy with slicked back hair, an emaciated face and puppy dog eyes who seemed intent on destroying the wisdom of every clothing purchase I'd made over the past year. Yes, blue is in, but not THAT shade of blue which is too bright for this year and you certainly should have selected a more muted gold but if you're going to wear it in public anyway then you DEFINITELY don't want that yellow fleck in the tie which is much too close in hue. And he was saying all this in one of those French-English hybrids, with me answering back in kind with "Look ici Marc, vous sont starting to fromage me off. I certainment don't need vous to parlez me what to wear avec mon pantaloons.

Lately in history and geography class we've been traveling north of the border. Our unit on Canada might have seemed daunting at first, but I think we've all been surprised at how much we've learned about our neighbor to the north. Why study Canada? For one thing, the majority of its population lives within 200 miles of the United States. Most Americans will travel to Canada at least once in their lifetime, even if it's only to see the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Canada has two official languages, English and French.

Like many Americans, I keep a wary eye on Canada, just as a teenage girl keeps her eye on a talented younger sister. Sure, we've been in the lead for a long time now, but Canadians keep narrowing the gap. They have better bank rules than we do, so they didn't suffer a financial meltdown last decade like we did. The Canadian dollar, once worth only about 70 American cents, is now at par. And worst of all, it looks as if Canada has beaten us...

"Welcome to Maryland, third largest state in the union. " Has a nice ring, don't you think? I bring this up because of a Document Obtained By The Herald-Mail Company - oh, all right, a column e-mailed to the opinion desk by Kenneth T. Tellis of Mississauga - titled "Newfoundland's connection to the United States through Lord Baltimore. " Tellis explains the connection thusly: "Sir George Calvert (1579-80) the 1st Lord Baltimore was granted permission to colonize Ferryland, Newfoundland with English Catholics by King James I of Great Britain in 1621-23, but because of the harsh climate and conditions the colonization was abandoned.

Editor's note: These letters appeared in The Herald-Mail on Sunday, Aug. 2: How is it that Canada can do health care right? To the editor: How is it that Canada and other small nations, in contrast to our large nation, has a comprehensive and effective health-care system which costs half the price per capita of our patchy and less than comprehensive plan? Why are our pitiful politicians screaming about the cost of a comprehensive plan when the Canadian example shows that the costs can be cut in two?
