No Dan... There are 53 States.. And I'm the Cutman...

Apparently this explains ALOT

The California Alternative High School in Los Angeles targeted Hispanic immigrants, charging $450 to $1,450 for a 10-week course it said would lead to a valid diploma and help them get into college, find better jobs and get financial aid, California Attorney General Bill Lockyer said last week.

But the school's certificate isn't recognized as a high
school diploma, Lockyer said, and school officials ignored a previous court
order that banned them from telling consumers it was.

Lockyer said the curriculum consisted of a slim workbook riddled with errors, including:

— The United States has 53 states but the "flag has not yet been updated to
reflect the addition of the last three states" — Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto

— World War II began in 1938 and ended in 1942.

— There are two houses of Congress — the Senate and the House, and "one is for Democrats and the other is for the Republicans, respectively."

I wonder if Bush won the other 3 states?
