State things

Like Gail Collins, I like state things:

I am a big fan of State Things — the ever-growing national collection of mottos, songs, slogans, nicknames and state birds, flowers, rocks and animals. This began back when I was a legislative reporter in Connecticut and covered a hard-fought contest for official status between the deer and the whale, during which the State Senate, in a moment of extreme pique, voted to make Connecticut’s state animal the human being.
