Another View of America

Do you, like most, hold a stereotypical view of America? Do you think Texas is full of “rednecks”, the cuisine is mainly McDonalds, that “trailer parks” are full of the down-and-out?

Jon Kelly – a BBC reporter taking a special election bus across America – has been stopping in some unusual places to show the real america. He’s keeping a blog to show where he’s been.

It’s the comments that make this blog. Of course, there’s dissenting views about what constitutes an “american” and where he should have visited, but I love it. You can’t please everyone, and he can’t go everywhere, but he’s made some astute choices on what he’s reported about.
