I have been a big fan of Hanks for nearly 30 years. I also lost my job over 2 years ago when it moved to Mexico. I was happy to hear "Red, White, and Pink Slip Blues". It made me feel like Hank gave a hoot about us middle class people. However, after seeing him in Evansville in April (which he did a great job and seemed to be back to his old self) and I bought a t-shirt for $30, I got home and looked at it and it was "Made in Mexico". I felt like I had been kicked in the teeth. He should steer his fan club to be buying American products. I know I've gotten plenty of his t-shirts before that were made in the USA.
