Give me libraries or give me debt - In war time they take the libraries-!!

It seems like 90% of the folks we stay with bring up travel journals that remind them of our trip. John Steinbeck's 'Travels with Charlie' is among the more popular ones.<p>Never having read any of the road journals mentioned to us by our gracious hosts, and declining the offer to read, and/or hear, about said travel journals... You see, we really don't want to be influenced or deterred when completing our book of travel stories.<p> Funny thing is... we can't seem to get away from them... in Austin,Tx. we ran into the original Kerouac manuscript, and when staying near Monterey California's cannery row things were no different... Steinbeck this, Steinbeck that.<p> Then we remembered the libraries in his hometown of Salinas, Ca. were threatened with closure a while back... in general another thing we try and stay away from is stories that have been told... good thing for us this one is still unfolding.<p> Find out more here: And if you care, keep an eye on this.. it looks like the political vultures might pick the library's funds clean once again.<p> Libraries are most important in areas of the working class and undereducated... let those go and you will feel it in EVERY zipcode, not just the ones you use and abuse.

The saga of the NOmadjik Media Bus at the Republican National Convention played out among context that will sadden anyone who believes in freedom and democracy. The RNC in St. Paul was an exercise in intimidation, harassment and preemptive arrest of JOURNALISTS.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, too long, too short?? This video has STRONG LANGUAGE and STRONG SUBJECT MATTER! After getting to know Mr. Ryan's films, he's now one of our favorites. Beware, this isn't easy stuff to swallow... Distributed by Tubemogul.

What's the Best and Worst thing about America???

As my wife and I, with the help of our dog and turtle travel the entire election year, self producing a book and film, and regularly updating a website along the way... working from town to town, sleeping on floors, couches, in the truck and depending on the kindness of strangers.

We Ask America stuff. The Question, "What do you think is the Best and the Worst thing about America?" is the favorite... it's actually become a requested question from some of our subjects and supporters.

This video features members of the band Arson Anthem and eyehategod.

We hope you enjoy Part 8 of Best and Worst thing about America. Distributed by Tubemogul.
