I’m not sure why I like goofy road-trip stuff like this, but I do. Via Pop Culture Junk Mail, Welcome to America: welcome signs for all 50 states. Of course, I had to look at the signs for every state I’ve driven in (15 so far, and I’ve also been to Louisiana, though I’ve never driven a car there). That’s pretty weak, I know.
