Subject: RE: BS: 'Catter deployed in southwest Asia
I have just enjoyed a little bit of cultural cognitive dissonance. A TV on the camp was tuned to a local Afghan station and a rather sappy video of people walking around in a park was showing. The background music was ... the pride of Stratford, Ontario, Loreena McKennit.
The Canadian I have replaced here gave me a Stan Rogers CD, Home in Halifax, before he left. I was looking forward to listening to it, but since I have a copy of my own back home I gave it to our interpreter.
What's next on the Canadian cultural campaign in Afghanistan? Stompin' Tom Connors? The Red Green Show? Trailer Park Boys?
