Ah a fellow Michael Thompson — just had lunch with another from Scotland yesterday. Very true and these days a few people I know have their own Canadian dream story. For me personally I get the American Dream stories often because of the demographic I work with, and easily forget that often times I am only surrounded by very similiar people who represent a very small percentage of the overall population.
If you ever run into the ex-Laker Mychal Thompson let me know.
Take care and thanks for taking the time.
