If I were Canadian, I wouldn't admit it.
At least, after this story. Of course, if Canada had captured an alien craft and its crew in 1948, I doubt that any of its officials, past or present, would be talking about it in public. Call it Roswell envy.
I can't wait to hear what Mark Steyn has to say.
Update: Woohoo! I got a comment!
No offense meant to Canadians. Actually, I was paraphrasing s bit from W.C. Fields. A man comes into his store and asks if he knows a man named "Carl LaFong, capital L, small a, capital F, small o, small n, small g." Fields replies "No, I don't know Carl LaFong, capital L, small a, capital F, small o, small n, small g; and if I did know Carl LaFong, I wouldn't admit it!"
I well remember what it was like to have Bill Clinton in the Oval Office. We can't always have politicians we're proud of.
