This final note today. Tourism is a big economic deal in this country. Many billions of dollars worth of big deal.
So a new marketing campaign from a public private partnership called the Corporation for Travel Promotion caught our eye. America as "The United States of Awesome Possibilities." Which just begged for other ideas:
Brandon Flood: I mean, it's a little overboard, the 'awesome.'
Ron McMillan: The United States of Limitless Opportunities.
Don Stewart: We welcome anyone that wants to come visit. We'll certainly welcome anyone that wants to come buy our stuff.
Dennis Meacham: United States of Acceptance.
Stewart: I would say United States, Y'All Come. But that seems to be just a little more colloquial than perhaps a global advertising campaign.
Karen French: Somebody's getting paid good money to come up with something better than 'awesome.' Am I wrong? I'm not wrong in that.

Got a better idea? Send 'em along.
