Episode Summary

Why do we have "blank spots" like Area 51 all over our map? Who's hiding what from whom? And why do some sections of the country, such as Key West in Florida, yearn to secede from their "neighbors", while others adapt to change by reinventing themselves - such as the hardy folks in Kansas who transformed dusty old missile silos into beautiful, five-bedroom homes? And, although it remains a part of the state legally, why was Dade County apparently left off the Georgia State Quarter? Was it being punished for harboring secessionist sentiments left over from the Civil War?
