I've always loved that sign, which by the way is also
in large neon letters on a bridge crossing the
Delaware from Trenton to PA. I've tried collecting
similar slogans with unintended (?) other readings.
Unfortunately, the only other one that comes to mind
is New Hampshire's LIVE FREE OR DIE which always
seemed like a threat to me.
