Only goes to show you... here today, gon tomorrow.

Nope... when the miners got here, they realized that there was no gold 
here... hence the name "Ore-gone". This was later shortened to Oregon when 
the signs got partially covered with moss and the last E got eaten away.

Soon after, the fur trappers discovered dirt and trees and all the farmers 
and loggers trailed in. Toward the end of this century, however, the 
Californians, after overrunning and trashing their own state, discovered 
us. It's been downhill ever since. :-)
