    Actually, IIRC, I believe there are officially 48. Two (Massachusetts and Virginia) are Commonwealths.

    They still rate a star on the flag though...

    I knew it was either 48 or 46. I just couldn't think of the other two and I was too lazy to Google it. And yes, of course, they rate a star. Never disputed that.

    This would be a great Jeopardy question.

    You boys left off the "state" of panic that I fall into every time I think he'll get elected.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.
