"Foreigners don't want to waste time in
the freeway-strip-mall-franchise -warehouse-outlet-lowrise-taco
stand burger landscape of America that we all know and don't see
as it spreads. . . They want to see the magnificent things in
America. They want to see where the music comes from and where
the books come from . . ."
- Garrison Keillor, White House conference on Travel and Tourism in Sept., 1995.
