The District of Columbia is trying to fix its image, soÂ it is spending $150,000 to choose a new motto for the city.Â Â
A Washington Post article on theÂ search for a catchy sloganÂ made the mistake of permitting reader suggestions. Some of the initial proposals:
*Where Some Tourists Come to Die
*Zimbabwe Without the Passport
*Eat here and get shot
*The Most Self-Important City in the World
It would be great to come up with a motto for DC thatÂ captured Washington’s role as headquarters of the war machine & contemporary imperialism.Â Â SuggestionsÂ are welcome at my blog here.
