#1 If you haven't seen the movie, 'Argo,' that depicts this, I highly recommend it.

#2 The biggest problem with the movie is that it downplays the heroism of the Canadians.

#3 Not going to see Argo because I don't want to put any money in Ben Asshat's pockets. Will wait for bitorrent...

#4 Canadians can still buy beer at par in the bars in Buffalo, NY by way of thanks for Ambassador Sheardown's heroism. Granted, now that the Canadian dollar is stronger than ours, it's not quite the special treatment it was when the ratio was the other way round, but even so.
