Over the River


5"X7" Graphitint on paper

Living here on the border, "over the river" takes on a special meaning. It means "them" everything unCanadian. It means shopping duty free, border guards with guns, voting for Bush.
It also means, Youngstown, New York, a charming little town, right at the mouth of the Niagara River, so close to Niagara-on-the Lake that I could easily swim to it. That is if I wanted to swim in water only a few miles down river from Love Canal. Does anyone even remember Love Canal these days?
