And while there has been much debate over these qualities in the modern political era, I think all of us can agree that one such thing is the spirit of entrepreneur- ship that this country breeds. This issue, in particular, celebrates this spirit with coverage for those working towards bring- ing American Made to the forefront once again (page 44), the workers on the frontlines of busi- nesses around the country (page 34), those aim- ing to expand production with high-volume (page 56) and wide-format (page 52) equipment, and decorators wanting to stand out from the crowd (page 58). All these opportunities are what excite the entrepreneurial personality and help keep industries like ours going. So, let's raise a hot dog and a cold one to the spirit of invention and the op- portunities this country brings. Cheers!
