This land is my land

Funny, the president's coming out in favor of gay marriage didn't touch me the way this one-second shot in the US's first ever official tourism film did. It's a lovely little film, with a great song by Rosanne Cash called "Land of Dreams," and shows all the lovely colors of America. Whoever scripted this scene gets it. The film's other scenes are outdoors and indoors, in nature and culture, individuals, groups... Here's a public trolley, and these guys feel safe enough not just for one to put his arm around the other, but for the other to fall asleep. God bless America.
