The Motto Ballot Is in themail

The Friday the 13th special from themail is mottos and more mottos — all the proposed city/state mottos for the District of Columbia that have been submitted to themail.

Please vote for your favorite anytime on or before Saturday, November 21, by sending an E-mail to with “Motto vote” in the subject line, and the one motto that you prefer in the body of your message. (If you vote for more than one motto, I'll count only the first motto that you list, anyway.) If we get a clear consensus for one motto, the lucky winner who submitted it will receive acclaim, so be sure to stuff the ballot box.
