Missouri The Show Me Great Rivers State?

All states "tweak" their license plates every few years, you know like getting that new dress for the big prom dance, but that's OK, a little paint change toss in a graphic to catch the eye, but you should never, never, ever change your MOTTO. Your motto, that brief statement used to express a principle, goal, or ideal because who you are - you don't change that.

We are THE SHOW-ME STATE and that's it. Yes, we have rivers but that does not tell who we are. It's SHOW-ME that defines us.

Read on "A state senator from St. Louis County wants to replace the Show Me State, Missouri's time-honored slogan, with this: The Great Rivers State."

The fully story is here:  "Listen up Senator: just leave well enough alone."

  1. The Show Me State has punch while the new, drippy slogan is like a Hallmark card: boring. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That's always been an excellent rule.
