In "South Park: The Movie," Americans talking about their resentments against Canadians bring up singer Bryan Adams. The Canadian prime minister protests, "The Canadian government has apologized for Bryan Adams on numerous occasions."
Last week a wonderful lady passed away after a long battle with cancer. Her name was Mary Ann Sloan. She was a dear friend and classmate of mine. She worked for many years at Sandusky Central Catholic High School in the office.
