    nobody.really: You’ve reminded me of the long-ago contretemps in Iowa, where the then-governor wanted to adopt a new state slogan: “Iowa—A State of Mind”. This was wildly unpopular, and the Des Moines Register sponsored a contest for something better. The two I remember are “Iowa—A State of Vegetables” and “Iowa—Gateway to Nebraska”.
