A Bill to Make the High Five the Official Greeting of Missouri

Courtney Allen Curtis (left), a member of the Missouri House of Representatives, has proposed a bill that will make the high five the official greeting of the State of Missouri. It’s a joke, but he’s also serious about the subject.

Curtis explains that he often gives high fives to other members while he walks around the floor of the House chamber. It’s a way of promoting collegiality. Fiercely debating serious issues can set members at odds with each other. But they’re opponents, not enemies. A high five is friendly and encourages people to work together. Surely that’s worth at least an air five.
