Anyone out there know if or when the State will change it's name from "North Dakota" to just "Dakota"?

I met a very nice gentleman from Grand Forks, ND who came to visit me. I asked him how come he couldn't find a woman up there, and he said it was cause there ain't none to choose from and besides, the state has not "dots" on it. When inquring what "dots" are, he said that was cities on the map. ROFLMAO! Needless to say it didn't work out. Told him I didn't have enough winter clothes to move up there with him and get hitched!

I heard of a rumor to that effect. However, I don't think there will be any marriage as a result. There would be a need for some heat for a union to take place. Right now I figure it's too damn frigid. Marriage counseling might help though. This advice comes from a psychotherapist who once survived 50 below in Cheyenne, WYO many moons ago. I love it when New Yorkers complain when it gets 32 degrees or lower. They don't know COLD.

I hope not. I'm from North Dakota and if they changed the name I'd never find my way back!

Dear Fred.
Don't worry! Those fool politicians forgot there is about 3/4 million people south of them who might object. Besides the Original Americans might think we were giving it back. Have a friend who lives in Florida who thinks the Buffalo still roam the prairies and across the highways. Thinking of motorcycles and Geo Metros and volkswagons gives a whole new meaniong to ROAD KILL. I get tired of people not knowing what keeps holding the Canadian border in place and what keeps Minnesota from falling over onto Montana. So when they make remarks about our weather, just remember that the wind that chills you to the bone in GA at 30 degrees hardly touches you through Carharts at -10 degrees. And they can't go ice fishing in GA and a buck in FL still has spots out here on the prairies.

I can think of new names for both states - North Tundra and South Tundra. If ever a union should take place, it'll be known by the beloved name TUNDRA.

Them two Dakotas are two of the very few states I haven't been to. Hope to get there before I die.
What I can't figger out is how, in those solid Republican states, people like Tom Daschle, Kent Conrad, Byron Dorgan and George McGovern get elected for as long as they want to be.
Maybe if they call one "Dakota" the other'n should be changed to "Goathead"?

The Black Hills of South Dakota is some of the most beautiful scenery you could hope for. Definitely should be on everybody's list of places they gotta go before they get too old. In North Dakota there's the Badlands, containing Theodore Roosevelt Natl Park that draws the few tourists that visit the state, but for me you can't beat the rolling farmland near home for beautiful scenery. Of course I might be a bit biased...
