DC: I Have To Go Home and Blog About This!

Apparently, David McCullough sued or something, because Washington, DC: The American Experience is no longer a worthy "state" (and I use the term loosely) motto. Because metro's not crowded enough with people who think DC residents are the scum of the earth, the DC Board of Tourism has decided they need a new slogan to attract more tourists to the city. Better still, they solicited suggestions from the fair citizens of the District, who overwhelmingly indicated that the motto, We Don't Like You Either, would be the best choice were it not taken by New York.

The best and the brightest- and some of my own:
