Everybody else has:
WASHINGTON - A 17 percent drop in overseas travelers to the United States since the Sept. 11 attacks has cost the country more than $15 billion in lost taxes and nearly 200,000 jobs, a study showed Tuesday.
Tough nuts for America. As for me, the day I am required to show a passport is the day I stop driving across the border to watch Bill's games. Buffalo's got nothing else going for it anyway, and the day has long since passed when you could get a good deal at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The beer is watery, the plastic cups it comes in get smaller every year, and the slices of pizza you buy for about $5.00 Cdn a pop are a pathetic disgrace. One slice of salami! Maybe! If you find a second one, consider yourself blessed! And is that orange stuff supposed to be cheese?
I will miss the tail-gate party, however, where you can see barbecues about an acre square. But they're not worth being treated like a potential terrorist.
PS. Right now you can still drive across the border without a passport. So if you do that, you can then hop a flight without a passport. But sssh! Keep it under your hat or the Taliban will hear!
