i don't think it's grandfathered...part of me wants to not tell them and let them waste their break in winnipeg, but part of me feels guilty. do you know if it is grandfathered?
i wasnt even aware that such a law existed! what does grandfathered mean? ive met many wonderful americans at bars in winnipeg (though bars suck, its how you react inside that countse), so this is news to me.

sorry i cant be of more help!

well if its any consolation, i am a journalist by day, a suicidal-sex crazed-maniac by night.

LOL HAHAHAH... Whew, you got me. I was ready to statr firing off letters & emails to my representatives asking for his immediate dismissal then realized if he actually said that I wouldn't have too. Missed SNL last night. I've seen the Chris M skits before. Classic humor. Reminds me of the late great Phil Hartman, I loved and miss that guy.

A very interesting article in the new MotherJones mag. Dreyfuss states the policy on the Persian Gulf started during the Carter Admin during the oil crisis. The main quote that I think is so true is "Controlling Iraq ia about oil as power, rather than oil for fuel", says Michael Klare, professor of peace and world security studies at Hampshire College, "Control over the Persian Gilf translates into control over Europe, Japan, and China. It's like having our hand on the spigot."

i guess manitoba got pissed cos all the university of north dakota students went over to canada to get piss drunk and had to stay there all the time.

grandfathered is like when the states was changing its legal age to 21. all the people who were 18 at the time were "grandfathered" in and could still drink, though not 21.
