I Believe Everyone Needs a Vanity Plate

The State of Florida rejected this license plate design in April, but South Carolina is gonna go for it, according to the New York Times:
The bill authorizing the plate passed the State House and Senate unanimously on May 22. It became law without the signature of Gov. Mark Sanford, a Republican, under the South Carolina Constitution.
Why? This is a question better left for your higher power -- science, if you will. But the How We Drive blog has a theory:
A recent study by Nationwide Mutual Insurance (albeit with very sketchy self-reported data) found the Palmetto State to lead the nation in texting while driving. And if you’re going to patently dangerous things like that, better to meet one’s maker, I suppose, with an appropriate calling card on one’s car.
The ACLU and the American Jewish Congress may sue, says the Times.
