I hadn't been to New Hampshire before. I'd been to the other New states - York and Jersey and Mexico, I mean. If we have New states shouldn't we have matching Old states?
On a related issue, in the case of Directional states, the North/South pairs are neatly matched - you know, the Carolinas and the Dakotas. But what is the deal with the Virginias? One is West and one is just... plain Virginia. Can't we rename it East Virginia?
As for Kansases - Ar and Non-Ar,
It's clear the whole thing's gone too far.
And Washington State vs. our national Capital -
Hopeless. Let's just scrap it all.
