Updating Map Such status or simple visitors' visas are easier to obtain for Canada than for the United States. As a result, American and Canadian border officials say it is typical for immigrants to enter Canada legally, and then be smuggled across the border.
At his immigration hearing, Mr. Khan said he had not applied for such status, but he asked for admission as a political refugee. He said he fled India because of dangers from his involvement with separatists in his home state of Kashmir, leaving a wife and two children behind. To be allowed to stay in Canada, Mr.
Khan, who had been in the country less than a week when he tried to cross the border, must prove he had ''a well-founded fear of persecution.
The tragedy has reignited debate in this industrial city of 47, over the issue of smuggling. Since cigarette smuggling stopped pouring money into the local economy, more people appear to have joined Mayor Ron Martelle in actively opposing smuggling in general. Until the Oct. Martelle said. The Mohawk police have insisted that they are also eager to stop human smuggling.
Roger Mitchell of the Akwesasne Mohawk Police. But other Mohawks feel the resentment over smuggling activities represents another manifestation of racism. They say fewer than 10 percent of the 10, Mohawks were ever involved in any kind of smuggling, and that far fewer smuggle people.
But others maintain that Indians are not bound by customs laws, because they were here before there was a country. This argument is being pressed by Michael Mitchell, who in , in his capacity as grand chief of the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, deliberately violated what he calls ''the imaginary international border'' by taking a truck of American goods across the Canadian border without formally declaring it.
The case is now being heard by Canada's Supreme Court. Goddamn, Bruce, I know.

I am uploading all my old outsideleft posts to this site, hopefully backdated correctly, so be warned that the RSS feeds may look crazy and you might see a deluge of content coming through this particular tube. The Wire, October Issue. Or rather, it has been on the streets in the UK and to subscribers, but its takes about a month to stores here. I just received my contributor copy this evening. The article looks great and they used a number of photos and everything.
The Wire is one of the magazines of which I tend to keep an issue around for ages, reading it in little spurts - a review here, an article there, ambiently until the cover comes off from either being trod upon at the side of my bed or steamed to paste from the shower. It is very difficult to process seeing my own name in it, among its regular contributors.
Kinda like Artforum for music, except without the creepy interest in the business side of things. But, if you have the slightest inclination toward adventurous music, The Wire contains consistently the finest quality writing about the subject, willing to step out of record crates and concert halls and see this music in a greater philosophical context, and I am honored to be a part of it.
If one more reference to Robert Wyatt appearing on the cover comes up today, like if he's a guest judge on America's Next Top Model or something, I will be sufficiently creeped out to go into hiding. Labels: new orleans , publications , the wire. I bring the Beatles in as a prime culprit.

Alex Cook Trampolining - Front Flips Add to My Profile More Videos I am way into trampolining, or "tramolining" as I accidentally put it in the closing credits never make a typo on the internet or you risk becoming an ironic "YouTube star.
People coming up to you on the street saying "How's the 'tramolining? Grow up, people! I don't talk about my tram p olining a lot, though it is one of my greatest passions. The spring of the mat, the perfect moment when you either must do that front flip right now or not yet now , exhilarating.
I still have trouble with my dismount as demonstrated on the video, but then I forgot to wear my grip socks that day, and if you had logged in as much mat-time as I have, you'd appreciate how slick those things are. Outside of that, my flips are the mack. I am comfortable saying so. Still though, some guys and girls, too get all caught up in their form, but for me it's really about the air, the defiance of gravity, making the world spin around you for a second. It's like the difference between competitive surfing and being a "soul surfer.
I guess I don't talk about all that much because all the other things I do are talk, and trampolining is all do. Perhaps one day I'll put it all together and write a book about trampolining, like be the Hunter S.
Thompson of it, like he was for football. Or how George Will wrote that book about baseball, except you got the feeling he never really played baseball.
There is something there, but for right now, I want to keep that part of my life pure. Thanks to my boy Daniel Bishop for directing and his parents Sue and Ian for producing.

I had a chance encounter with Fugazi on the iPod the other day I am in the A-F binder of CD's in my digitization efforts and it really will not stop. It's like when I first heard Fugazi in Fred's apartment, which had eerily been my old girlfriend's apartment not too many years before, and all I could listen to was Fugazi, making up for all that time I foolishly spent not listening to Fugazi.
And, possibly, indirectly from this chance meeting, I landed an interview with Ian Mackaye for a certain graphically distinctive literary journal! The iPod apparently does not know its own strength, or scarily, maybe it does. This afternoon, I got stuck in traffic crossing the bridge in my no-AC sweltering car and just played this song and over, yelling "I DON'T WANT TO BE DEFEATED" red-faced, over and over with them until that perfect air-raid-siren guitar riff hit, and in an instant, the fear of collapse I have every time I get stuck in traffic on a suddenly physics-improbable bridge became a moment of electrified Oneness with the hubris of trans-river architecture and civilization too, in a way and the gamble we take when we utilize it.
I reasoned I could listen through that riff at - one last time as my rust coffin hung on the edge and then plummeted into the Mississippi. So punk rock, that would be. I never have this feeling when I take the ferry.
I was glad when traffic started moving, but I still listened to this on repeat until I got stuck in traffic safely on the other side, just to be sure. For more information, please see Ramsay Midwood and Vanguard Records. Learn more about our star rating system. Sponsored by Outside in Music.
