Is Washington, D.C. a State?

It was only just before I began “sub primary” school, that’s what they called kindergarten back right after Columbus landed, the United States had grown from 48 states to 50. I know I wasn’t the greatest student on any campus but I did enjoy geography and thus I learned and remembered the 50 states. I could even find them on a map. No really! The United States is just a few miles west of Rome.

Evidently while I wasn’t looking, perhaps it was Tavistock or Obama, but I’m asking myself, “When did it change?”

During Senator Obama’s campaign for presidency, he told the people he was sooooooo busy he had visited 57 states. Man, I guess he was busy. Perhaps he was so busy that he needed the help of a Navy “CORPSEman” before he became a corpse…….or a man.

Now we find out that the White House has put a list of all the “51” states and what is going to happen to them if we don’t just send Obama every nickel we got. According to the list, the District of Columbia is now a state.

So, how many states do we really have?
