Made in the USA

Several months ago, while traveling through the south of France, I wrote a brief post expressing my pleasant surprise — indeed, my patriotic pride — at seeing something — anything — made in the USA. A few weeks ago, I was surprised again to see another item made in the USA when I least expected it. This time it was a protective case for my mobile phone.

Sure, I’d rather have a $6 made-in-China case wrapped around a $200 made-in-the-USA smartphone, but given the state of manufacturing in my motherland, I’ll settle for having it the other way around.
