'The Big Friendly'

Longtime Oklahoma City civic booster and advertising company executive Ray Ackerman is out today with the suggestion that Oklahoma City's new slogan be, "The Big Friendly."
Ackerman writes in The Oklahoman that another longtime civic booster, Lee Allan Smith, actually came up with the slogan and used it on some New York and California officials in New York and, "They loved it."
Ackerman says the slogan plays to Oklahoma City's strength, the friendliness of its citizens: "Hardly a week goes by that The Oklahoman doesn't print something from a recent visitor talking about a super-friendly experience they had while visiting here. Friendly people are important to those selecting a location for a new plant, a city for a convention or a destination for a vacation."
