ABSTRACT
The author reflects on how U.S. state mottos are still representative of bygone eras. An example is California's "Eureka" and Idaho's "Let it be perpetual." He cites some which he says do not really represent the place to which the motto belongs and some which are simple and should be emulated. He suggests updating some of these mottos like Utah's which could be "18 is the new 19," California's "Eureka" to "Like, whatever, Dude," and Oregon's to "'Yes' is the new 'No'."
