that was so strange, it was kind of entertaining. like a collage of a fantasy trips the guy never went on. left me a little baffled by what was the point, but still interesting.

Now the US has fake humour columns to go with their fake news.

The author is said to be "Special to the Montreal Gazette" yet the tiny publisher did not consider his article on Chile special enough to publish. The actual publisher is just a community echo chamber for the dominant local opinions. Now we know how journalism was killed.

[As preposterous as the author's statements on the CLP and inflation are, I've had friends who should know better say that Chile's money is weak based on nothing but the current exchange rate -- there's so little understanding.]

Never mind the idiocy; such articles might keep some gawkers away.

It's Canada, just FYI.

I should have twigged to the fact that this was Canada.

I was actually in Tillsonburg in 1978 or 79 when I was running car rallies in Southern Ontario.

But it wasnt a very memorable experience.
