SeanM BS: US or USA ? (30) RE: BS: US or USA ? 21 Oct 03

OK. Depends on where you're from.

Technically, the greater mass is known as "The Americas". This includes everything in North, Central and South America.

Understandably, some folks get vexed when the US is referred to as "America". We're ALL Americans on the continents covered. However, with the US world view being by far the dominant one that gets put out to the world at large, the term's been more or less coopted to just mean "US citizen" to a large number of people.
