Folks living in this tiny Alaskan border town may use Canadian dollars, but they’re still ‘100% American’ NOT http://t.co/7SRHfefXUI – Yes

Very interesting article about a man who lives in a small Alaska outpost where all of his infrastructure is provided (presumably for free) by Canada.
“We accept Canadian currency at par. I pay my hydro bills at the provincial office in Stewart. I have a 250 area code and I don’t want you to be offended, but no matter how tied we are to Canada there is not a single hair on my body that thinks I’m Canadian.
I fought in Vietnam for my flag, and I would stand up and fight for the Canadian flag. But I’m 100% American. Although I do have lots of Canadian friends. Canadians are good people eh.”
