This makes no sense

Perhaps in the mind of the writer for Yahoo! Travel this makes sense, but to the rest of us it’s just nonsense:

great white north travel

“Great White North” refers to Canada; it’s not a compass direction. So, what this gal wrote was “I headed to the border of our neighbor to Canada.” The neighbor to Canada is the U.S. , which of course contradicts the rest of the sentence. (It’s a minor slip to fail to capitalize falls, but if I didn’t mention it, someone else would.)

    I’d giver her one point for “and I”. It’s probably a good thing that she tells us that when you cross the border to Canada, that’s where you end up.

      Our standards have gotten so low that we now give points for getting a pronoun right? Unfortunately, that’s probably true.
