One More Reason Why I Love Florida...

From the Tallahassee Democrat:

You just thought "In God We Trust" was Florida's state motto.

After all, isn't it there on the state seal? Been there since Reconstruction days?

It's there, all right, but a search of state statutes would come up empty.

Until Thursday.

Gov. Jeb Bush signed into law a bill that makes "In God We Trust" the state's motto not just by custom since 1868, but officially.

"It wasn't until Andrew Killinger and Samual Ard, two industrious fourth-graders at Maclay School here in Tallahassee, couldn't find the motto in our laws and started the process of getting it adopted," Bush said. "Thanks to their efforts . . . we will sign this bill into law."
