“As its license plates remind both residents and visitors, the state of Illinois proudly claims the motto “Land of Lincoln.” However, had 

 this selection been left to the Lincolns themselves -- the final three generations, that is -- the honor might have gone to Vermont

 instead.” The New York Times, July 28, 2002
