Kevin McCann's site A Fair Deal for Newfoundland was launched only after Christmas, and triggered a massive reaction among Newfoundlanders (at home and away) on the Atlantic Accord issue. McCann's blog has moved into territory that's not necessarily connected with offshore revenues, including this post that should ring a bell for those of us who've spent time away, and have tried to explain where (and even just what) Newfoundland is.
When my parents lived in Florida, they eventually gave up trying to tell almost all of their neighbours where they were from home. (An exception would definitely be the couple next door, whom I met during a visit. Very curious about all things, they took up an interest in reading the Globe & Mail regularly, to keep up with international affairs.) My father also likes to tell the story from when he moved to Boston in 1955 for his graduate studies, and a classmate's utter disbelief that he couldn't drive across Canada in a day or two. (Might I mention the phrase "graduate studies" again?)
