How about a 'Patriot Zone' at Wal-Mart?

Two men are traveling cross-country in a fire truck to rally support for American-made products.

The video above is a Charlottesville, Va., newscast about the two, Aaron Lorell and Alex Smith. They explain how the loss of American manufacturing harms University of Virginia students. Without US manufacturing, they lose out on jobs as accountants, designers, marketing managers or even CEOs of manufacturers.

We like their idea of a "Made in America" section in retail outlets.  Lorell wrote to Wal-Mart's CEO  suggesting "Patriot Zones" in retail stores.
