    Prettiest State in the US?

    My vote is for the Virgin Islands.

    I once visited there (flew in on Maureen O'Hara's airline) and now they are simply called The Islands!

    I vote for the state of "denial".

    Technically a territory, not a state.

    The U.S. has states. The Virgin Islands of St Thomas, St Croix and St Johns are U.S. states

    Are you certain? I believe they are classified as Insular Possessions of the U.S. of A.. The Hawaiian Islands are a State of the Union,

    Read it and weep

    Effective Date

    For purposes of this chapter, the term "State" includes Guam and the Virgin Islands.

    Also note the keyword INCLUDES which performs the function of EXCLUDING everything not INCLUDED.
