I wandered over to the website for Saturday Night magazine

and discovered a feature called "Canadian Letters". Every issue they get a half dozen or so people from across the country to write about...whatever is going on where they are. ( Canada has the world's second largest land mass and fewer people than California so the physical distances do make a difference. ) I especially liked Jonathan Goldstein's memories of living in St. Henri. "One of Saint-Henri's greatest mysteries involves the old men who sit in running cars. You'll find them in the middle of the night, idling on a side street, staring at the dashboard. Sometimes I think Saint-Henri is Disneyland for nihilists; if it is, then idling cars are its Space Mountain."
