Wow, that one bit about the brown pelican is pretty intense. It says mythological act but is there any truth to this? Nature has produced weirder behaviors so maybe its possible.
Regardless, I like the slogan, especially the confidence part. It seems like a lot of state mottos have a certain kind of swagger. I am from Kansas and our state motto is a Greek phrase that basically translates as "To the stars with determination" Pretty bold for quiet old Kansas.
