The Pamphleteer

During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".

New Jersey Slogan Search Bars Sarcasm

(From Dan, our correspondent in the Commonwealth of Taxachusetts.)

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (Reuters) -- New Jersey, trying to overcome its reputation for corruption, traffic and toxic waste dumps, has rejected dozens of sardonic and sarcastic entries in a contest for a new tourist slogan. (Sorry, no link.)

A list of five possible slogans released Wednesday leaves out:

1) "New Jersey: We can always use another relative on the payroll," and

2) "Come to New Jersey: It's not as bad as it smells."

Other previous winners included:

1) New Jersey: You can't smell it in California

2) New Jersey: Someone's Gotta Live There!!

3) New Jersey: Where you get in for free, but pay a toll to get out.

4) New Jersey: Worth the Toll to Leave

5) New Jersey: Where Trash Gets Picked up, but the women don't.
