There was an interesting thread started by introducinlyric which was sidetracked into countries branding themselves.

I read this article (http://www.travelpod.com/forums/index.php?...w_post&f=41) about the USA branding itself, I guess I never thought about it but the US doesn't spend any "real" money promoting tourism.

Do you think it's a mistake?
Does the US need to promote itself or "they" will come anyway?

I, for one, would like to see the US tell the world that we are not only Disney and NY but that some of the most amazing natural scenery is here as well.

And a smile at the airport won't hurt anyone working there either...

Jeremy - I don't think the distance could be addressed smile.gif

Yes, there are huge issues with visas to the USA due to many people overstaying their welcome and laws not being enforced.

I think a moderately connected rail system would help - even though it would take quite some time to get anywhere though. Maybe as an engineer I should get to developing that teleporter I've been dreaming about.
