Have you ever questioned just how real and accurate those state nicknames and sayings are on our state license plates? Have you ever wished that they more honestly reflected the persona and personality of the state and its' people? Well, here is a snarky attempt, in five parts, at calling a spade a spade.

This is the 4th in a 5 Part Series. Yesterday, in Part 3, we looked at license plate nicknames for the states of Massachusetts through New Jersey, on Saturday, in Part 2, we looked at the  states of Hawaii through Maryland, and on Friday, in Part 1,  we looked at the states from Alabama through Georgia.

Tomorrow we will finish our series with Part 5, the last 10 states South Dakota to Wyoming.  Look for them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
