Many thanks to reader Scott for sending me the link to Walk America 2008, a blog by a guy who's already most of the way home. As he writes:
Hi! I'm BJ Hill. I am a 32 year old teacher who is walking from San Francisco back home to Massachusetts. I carry a notebook with me, and ask people I meet along the way to write a message to the next President of the United States. I hope to give these thoughts, concerns, and ideas directly to the president after he is elected in November.
Farther down the page, he writes that $35 supports him for a day and $100 buys him a pair of shoes to last a month. If you're moved to do so, why not contribute to his cause? And if he's somewhere close to where you live, why not go out, meet him, and give President-elect Obama a piece of your mind?
