    1. There’s a New Zealand cop show called “Brokenwood Mysteries” where the main detective is a much-divorced middle-aged guy who drives an ancient car with a cassette player and inflicts his old time country music on passengers. That’s when I realized–hey, Patsy Cline is really good!

  2. “The small Canadian town of Kensington on Prince Edward Island has found a special way of deterring drunk driving this holiday season — and we can all learn a lesson or two from the process.
