I think Louisiana can temporarily borrow Missouri's motto.

OK DQ, how's this for a NJ motto: "More Toxic Waste Sites Than Any Other State (and that's not even counting the statehouse in Trenton)?"

It is a particular flavor Brighams came up with-like when the sox won in 2004, they came out with Fenway Fudge, Reverse the Curse, etc.

I was referring to the fact that the Big Dig leaks like a sieve (sp?)

Odd thing (and it's true), when Clinton was president, Arkansas motto was: Land of Opportunity.
After his stint in the white house, it was changed to "The Natural State"

Wonder why that was?
