And that bitch Anne Murray too

The Weekly Standard does a bang-up job on the generic, apropos-of-nothing Blame Canada article, and I mean that in the best possible way: Canadians are traditionally so insecure about the lack of attention we pay them that their government has even paid American universities $300,000 to study them. One of the foremost Canadian Studies programs in the country is at Duke. A professor in the program has said, "We're the most important university to make a serious effort to study Canada. That's like being the best hockey team in Zimbabwe." Ow. Burn. And rightly so. Don't miss the very much deserved props to Will Ferguson, either; if ever there was a man with a firm grasp of the national character, it's he. (Via The Corner.)
