Hey! No pot shots of the great white north please, you'd be surprised how much more Canadians know about American history than Americans know about Canadian history.
No offense to Canadians
I was just making a point that it is a sad state of affairs when US citizens don't know the most basic American history. The article is refering to the oldest American (US Citizen). Lets do the math
If the US were founded in 1776 (remember the Revolutionary War?) and the current year is 2003, then that would make the US 227 years old. If Ms. Slough was born in 1889, then she would have been born 113 years after the US was founded... thus being the Oldest American. Anyway... how did the discovery of America by CC get involved in this anyway?
