    In America

    I saw a good suggestion at the BBC boards where Americans were asked to explain why they voted for George W. Bush. It was this: The next time you come to America, go to places other than Boston, New York and Los Angeles. Its funny, but I never thought before how "Blue America" seemed to draw pretty much all foreign tourists. How many non-Americans visit New York each year, and how many visit Kansas City? Or any other part of "Red America." Although KC is probably blue because its a city. The sub-urbs and rural parts of America are full of history, and have plenty of things to visit, but relatively few see them. Perhaps Europe and the rest of the world would understand us better if they visited "Red America" once and a while.
