But here's this. In my mind, one of the most important aspects of the recovery act is the investment in rural broadband (high speed internet everywhere). Such internet penetration would allow more communities and entrepreneurs to participate in the 21st century economy.

Buying American isn't as simple as it once was. I am wondering if the ticket to our economic recovery is redefining what that term actually means.
