From "The Week"

* Suddenly Suspicious of Canadians: New travel rules may weaken relations with the neighboring countries.
Until last week, these two neighboring peoples could visit each other with no more ceremony than the flash of a driver’s license. Now, though, the security-conscious U.S. has begun requiring all airplane passengers crossing the U.S.-Canada border to carry a passport. By 2009, the rule will also apply to anyone who crosses the border by land.

* The magazine also notes "Is America closed for business? Middle Man" by Clay Risen from the New Republic Online. The paragraph long article points out the Bush administration travel restrictions are such that foreign business men are increasingly rejecting U.S. venues for business meetings, and U.S. executives are having to travel abroad.
