For a long time, I have felt a belief and a need that I need to be in the eastern part of the country....But I have another purpose. There are two views of America: One as a nation that is descending or has descended into a cesspool of self indulgence, evil, and corruption: that has an invisible 'this' as the second word on the motto on our currency.

The other is that it is still, with all its flaws, the greatest nation on earth. Alexis de Tocqueville, in his work 'Democracy in America' before the Civil War, reportedly claimed that 'America is great because America is good. When America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great'.

So, is America still good? I mean to take a look, across the middle of the country, and report what I see, both bad and good: not from the comfort of an office or the pinnacles of prestige, but...
