    OT - singular or plural

    But - possibly - the United States 'ARE' (since there is more than one 
    state/country in the Union) - though I admit that I usually say "the US 
    'IS'..."
    
    Florida is just as much a state as France, and Louisiana is just as much a 
    state as Lichtenstein..... (and we'll all be in the United States of Europe 
    soon  :~)
