Going back to ‘Land of Opportunity?’
If you don’t keep up with TalkBusiness.net regularly, you’re missing out on some great stuff.
Why? Roby Brock over there regularly reports on things that actually interest us Arkansans. Take this item, for example — incoming State Rep. David Sanders has pre-filed HB 1005, which could change our state’s slogan once again.
For more details on this possible change, click here to visit TalkBusiness and read all about it. The long and short of it is this — HB 1005 could effectively change Arkansas’ state slogan to what it was before they changed it last time.
Sanders wants Arkansas to abandon its “The Natural State” slogan in favor of “Land of Opportunity,” the nickname by which the state was known prior to its change in the mid-1990s.
I well remember when the state abandoned the “Land of Opportunity” slogan in favor of “The Natural State.” My mother, at the time, said it sounded like we Arkansans had just thrown in the towel — the whole “opportunity” thing didn’t work out, so we’ll fall back instead on bragging about how many trees and such we have in the state.
We’ll see how it goes.
