Motto a Go-Go   

By AJR Staff

Eric Newton, news historian at the Freedom Forum's Newseum, lists three categories for the signage: "Some are funny. Others are fiercely local. Still others make solemn promises to the readers." AJR culled these mottoes from the numerous supplied by the Newseum to create a fourth category: quirky.
