Wonder if the Brits are still smarting over our defection? They got over their loss of an empire after WWII, but we're still too thick to notice our own bankruptcy. So it seems, at any rate.

Man, you always run your country down, wassa matta wid chu? I care, it's pretty simple. But if a chorus of "On Wisconsin" will help, "On Wisconsin, etc."

All I know of the song is "On Wisconsin," come to think of it. I hear tell that it's a nice state, but it's mighty cold in the winter.

Isn't Wisconsin part of Canada? Or am I thinking of Illinois? ":O}

It may show up as a southern extension of Saskatchewan on some maps? Maybe our fair state could be seen as a bump on BC's lower boundary as well?

It's funny that Vancouver BC is considered Canada's Riviera, because it's north of us. But it's their warmest city in the winter, so I guess it has to do.

And it's a very expensive place to live. Canadians crowd the locals out of the Wal-Mart in Bellingham, Wa. Or used to, at least. That's the closest city to Vancouver, BC on our side of the border.

Think he would be invited to today's White House to perform? Maybe, but my guess is that he'd be "too black" to be comfortably received. Never mind, I'm too white to comment on this, come to think of it!

Double glazing rules. Only triple pane windows are better.

I think sending humans to Mars is stupid because machines do just as well and are far, far more economical to send there. But the idea does catch the imagination.

Being seen as too radical a perturbation to the status quo can be dangerous. Perhaps being popular and respected put the fatal icing on the cake.

There's a movie that claims that Paul McCartney died in a horrible auto crash many years ago and was replaced with a man that plastic surgery made into a good likeness of the original. George Harrison makes the claim. He obviously can't be asked about it. Tales of the strange.

There's a movie called "Paul McCartney Really is Dead-The Last Testament of George Harrison" or close to it that seems to be a genuine story. I've watched the flick thrice from Netflix. I really don't know if it's a true story, but it could be.
It's possible that Ringo has been the last Beatle alive for many years. It'd be great if he would help to clear up the mystery, assuming that there is one.

I see that way they can stave off the fantastic increase in value their Music library would have and give good old Mick a place to hide from abject poverty at the same time.

George...who would benefit from such a scram? What would make it worth the effort? Did they just kill everyone who knew the man? Mother father friends, wife or girl friend?

How have they kept them quite all theses years?

A little analytical thinking Please! ":O}

The easy answer is that Britain's income from Beatles records might have plummeted if Paul was officially dead. "Faul's," for "fake Paul's" income was not anywhere near to Paul's. Linda was happy to keep quiet, she had a "Beatle," which was more important to her than the real Paul--supposedly.
Remember the horrible little farm that Faul and Linda lived on in Scotland? It always puzzled me why they chose that over a comfortable estate in Surrey.
