I'm a little bit sensitive about being lumped in with those guys - not that they're all bad. I once had the misfortune of trying to smuggle my bicycle on the London tube out to Heathrow and being caught by the transit police. They took a good round out of me and fined me for my transgression and let it slip that they thought I was a Yank. I slowly turned on them and identified myself as a proud Canadian - I gave them my best withering look. They crawled away apologizing as they went and I gladly paid the small fine.
