Anyone want to make this?
I think that if I had the wherewithal to make a Google Maps mashup, I'd try to make a map that pinpoints locations where well-known products are made in the U.S. You know, like Tootsie Rolls, or Tazo Tea, or Chevy Tahoes. This idea comes from watching a few too many episodes of "Unwrapped" on the Food Network, a show that apparently tries to use the words "extruder" and "conveyor" at least 75 times per show (to say nothing of the onslaught of Marc Summers' corny puns), and also "How It's Made". Also, when we were in Salem a couple of weeks ago, our hotel was right down the street from Kettle Foods.
Since it seems like the only things that are still made in America are food products and cars (and Google Maps), it would be cool to have a map of where those products are actually made. It'd be a pride-in-America sort of thing, I suppose.
Somebody work on that, okay?
