It is interesting to learn, from a surprising source,
that the United States has recently added six more
states. Do their people have votes? Do they know about their
new status? Or this just a short-hand for Puerto Rico,
etc., etc.?
Incidentally, in one of my data sets, which uses government data, the 56th state is Wyoming and the 11th state is the District of Columbia. Puerto Rico is the 72nd state. We don't seem to have states 3, 7, 14, 43, 52, or 57-71, at least in my list. I bet Guam is 14 and Virgin Islands is 52, and somebody with a good knowledge of U.S. territories can probably fill in the other gaps.
