Facebook is great for what it is. So is "Yo," for that matter. But neither focus on what matters. It's high time that Americans have a way to prioritize policy over gossip. So go ahead. Save America. You can. Unless you'd rather be President?

Still an acceptable form of travel in Iceland, hitching has its perks: It's cheap and it makes meeting locals easy (and necessary).
