We often think of America as red and blue states, but on today’s show, we’ll look at the other kinds of categories that make up the geography of America: from monied suburbs to Mormon outposts to tractor country. Art Spiegelman reflects on his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Maus, 25 years after it was first published. Jock Soto talks about his career as a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet. We’ll take a look at the many creative ways corporations try to get out of paying taxes. Then, the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer tells how one man is trying to reshape North Carolina politics heading into the 2012 presidential race.
