What do you call US?
Most of us call ourselves “Americans”. We call our country “America” or “U.S.A.” (we like to talk short). Technically, in reality, logically, sensibly, the U.S. of A. is only a part of America; other Americans include Guatamalans, Canadians, Mexicans, Argentinians, Peruvians, and more. Where do we get off presuming we are THE Americans? What would you call US: US-ers? U.S.-ers? USA-ers? We are special, dammit! Why can’t we come up with a special name?
