English actress Natasha Richardson died Wednesday in New York after a head injury.

While on holiday in Canada, Richardson fell during a skiing lesson but immediately got up, claiming she was fine. Doctors say she suffered from an epidural hematoma from the fall, which causes bleeding between the skull and the brain’s covering.

Dame Judi Dench ,who co-starred with Richardson in a 1987 production of Ibsen’s Ghosts, said: “She had an incredibly luminous quality that you seldom see, and a great sense of humour. I thought she was a really great actress. It has been so shocking, really shocking.”


A distinctly undiplomatic State Department official, involved in the planning of the Obama-Brown meeting, was quoted by The Sunday Telegraph as saying that “there’s nothing special about Britain. You’re just the same as the other 190 countries in the world.”

Thank you, Washington, for showing us how you really feel. Nothing to exploit from Britain, so it’s worthless, eh? Thank you. How ashamed I am of this so-called “leadership”. Thanks for insulting my heritage, and the country that made the United States for you to poo upon.

September 2008 – January 5, 2009

The year 2008 marks the 225th anniversary of Treaty of Paris that ended the American Revolution. However, its legacy has been much greater than merely ending the war: it reshaped North America, creating new political relationships, voicing new American identities, and leading to the forging of new lives throughout North America. This international exhibition brings together for the first time Library and Archives of Canada with the National Archives and Records Administration.

The eight-month exhibit will feature many valuable archival treasures from the vaults of both institutions, including the rarely-seen American copy of the 1783 Treaty of Paris. After premiering at the Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa on May 5, 2008, the exhibit will travel to the National Archives’ Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery in Washington to open on the treaty’s anniversary date of September 3rd.
