Why Is Missouri Called the "Show-Me" State?
There are a number of stories and legends behind Missouri's sobriquet "Show-Me" state. The slogan is not official, but is common throughout the state and is used on Missouri license plates.

The most widely known legend attributes the phrase to Missouri's U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1897 to 1903. While a member of the U.S. House Committee on Naval Affairs, Vandiver attended an 1899 naval banquet in Philadelphia. In a speech there, he declared, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me." Regardless of whether Vandiver coined the phrase, it is certain that his speech helped to popularize the saying.

Other versions of the "Show-Me" legend place the slogan's origin in the mining town of Leadville, Colorado. There, the phrase was first employed as a term of ridicule and reproach. A miner's strike had been in progress for some time in the mid-1890s, and a number of miners from the lead districts of southwest Missouri had been imported to take the places of the strikers. The Joplin miners were unfamiliar with Colorado mining methods and required frequent instructions. Pit bosses began saying, "That man is from Missouri. You'll have to show him."

However the slogan originated, it has since passed into a different meaning entirely, and is now used to indicate the stalwart, conservative, noncredulous character of Missourians.

Resources:
Rossiter, Phyllis. "I'm from Missouri--you'll have to show me." Rural Missouri, Volume 42, Number 3, March 1989, page 16.

Official Manual of the State of Missouri, 1979-1980, page 1486.



Did you know there was such a thing as the "Official Manual of the State of Missouri"?

she usually only does two or three from tidal, unfortunately.

shadowboxer, of course. criminal, which she doesn't really like (neither do i), and sleep to dream. she does most of the songs on extraordinary machine.

from when the pawn it's usually limp, paper bag, fast as you can, get gone (love them all) and sometimes to your love, on the bound, and i know.

she usually plays pretty much the exact same set list at every show. i should check and see if i can find one. gah, i'm so happy. two months ago i was saying i probably wouldn't get the chance to see her again and now look.

it's awesome.

i know, too much fiona.

i'm sorry.

Normal Cute...they get smaller!











And the standard (it will go with my car...and after my Illinois fiasco with U2 plates...I will NOT get a U2 plate):



Fiona is playing Indianapolis too. We are thinking of going. Decent people are playing here...it is nice to live in a somewhat real city.

To the BAWs (I already mentioned this to beegeee):

We are making a California trip. we are inviting ourselves to your place for a BAW-B-Q. We require seperate rooms and beds...but the same bath towel!
