    Hey, it happens. When I replied to you, I was thinking of Ogden, where the Browning Bros. started, not the whole state of Utah.

    From the article:

    "Utah State Representative Brian King, a Democrat, opposed the designation."
    "When we are talking about a state symbol we would do well to come up with one that is more unifying than divisive and this is a very divisive symbol for obvious reasons," he said. "This is just a poor choice for a state symbol."

    Yet apparently he's ok with this;

    "Other Utah state symbols include the Dutch oven, Spanish sweet onion, the sugar beet, the elk and the cutthroat trout."



    Hey, not everyone likes ONIONS either!

    Hmmm... I guess South Carolina could claim the Chinaberry gun?

    My redneck heritage shineth through.

    Remember, Arizona does NOT border Mexico ... according to some people.
    Then which of the 57 or is it 58 states does it border? ;)
