Bad trip

| Disqus Comments
One of our own, from my alma mater Carleton University, in fact, fell afoul of the gendarmerie in JawJaw, You Ess of Eh, the other day. Speeding through the Peach State led to her being arrested, stripped and jailed overnight, even though the husband had the money to post a bond and US Customs and Immigration informed the local Che'f that she was in the country legally. Lucky she wasn't one of them nigras or Moozlums.

On the other hand, if it's an American cop who's doing the speeding, ferchrissake don't complain about it. And if you spend Christmas down there, don't play with your presents early.

We're more fortunate here in Canada. Oh, sure, the horsemen indulge in the odd summary execution disputed fatal shooting, and beat up law-abiding folks in their own homes for demanding search warrants, but at least we wouldn't drag a tourist off to the hoosegow for a minor speeding offence. We're not like those crazy Americans.

UPDATE: (April 12) I would advise American tourists, though, if at all possible, to stay away from Ottawa homeless shelters.
