Yes, I did mean Stratford, Ontario.  Sorry about the confusion.

Graham Hall, our hinterlands correspondent, reports the following of
geographical and poetical (perhaps doggerellicine) interest, to wit:

>as the motorway signs proclaim - "Historic Warwick"

Thus bureaucracy anticipates satire. I tried to think of some other apt
county appellations but couldn't come up with anything offhand except
dull offerings like Worcester Booster, Surrey Hurry and (God save the
mark!) York Pork -- none of which have either the ring or the
applicability of Historic Warwick. Since only that locale (and London)
would relate to the subject of this list, I invite members to write me
off-list with ideas of their own.  Maximum points for having the rhyming
word before the country. Separate categories (of course) for counties in
Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Standard abbreviations (like Hants, Herts,
etc) are perfectly acceptable The winner gets an automatic nomination
for the coveted Hernshaw Award.

Cheers,
 don
