WHY DOES IT SOUND LIKE A DARE? (via The Mother Judd):

New Jersey Picks a Slogan: Come Read It for Yourself (RICHARD LEZIN JONES, 1/13/06, NY Times)

After inviting residents to vote on five finalists, [Gov. Richard J.] Codey announced the winner on Thursday: "New Jersey: Come See for Yourself."

He made the announcement roughly 100 feet from where about a dozen exotic dancers were protesting some unrelated legislation on the State House steps.

"I can't bear it," Mr. Codey said when asked about the coincidence, drawing groans from reporters who had gathered to hear the state's new catchphrase.

Anyone who has driven from Baltimore to New York City has seen for themselves.
