Today, the Canadian dollar was worth $0.999 US.

I don’t usually pay much attention to economic indicators – if I do, I usually end up in a tirade about the disasterous shortcomings of the capitalist system in general – but then I moseyed on over to Selvedge. I love Selvedge. I think it’s one of the best magazines for textile news and inspiration. It’s beautiful. And they have really great new rates for US subscribers, because they’re now also printing in the US.

But not for Canada. It’s $60 more for a Canadian subscription! $60. That’s $59.97 US.

I’m so grumpy about this.
