My apologies to everyone in Toronto who was salivating to see me. I neglected to check my passport. I noticed at the airport that it had expired on April 1st. What a dork I am. I had to scramble and re-organize everything.
Why do we need passports between the US and Canada anyway? You can go from France to Germany without a passport and those guys used to fire machine guns at each other! By the way, that story about the 9/11 hijackers coming in through Canada is not true. Most Americans seem to “know” this as a fact whereas every Canadian I’ve met is aware that it never happened.
Anyway, I will deal with the passport issue and have one by the time of my retreat in Calgary on September 15th. More info on that soon.
I’m at the Newark airport now. Tomorrow I’ll be speaking in Ithaca. Which, by the way, is the setting for the movie The Three Stooges Meet Hercules. I hope somebody will take me to Dimsal’s Drug Store (which is the drugstore in Ithaca where the Stooges worked in the movie. Isn’t it sad that I know this?).
