Question 23. Name a state whose name both starts and ends in a vowel or consonant (i.e. not Delaware or Illinois).

I gotta try to at least stay in the negative. That will be a victory at this point, which shows how low I've sunk.

Re: Politics & World Events (Reverse) Sheep, Round 3 — Hypersheep

Is the letter Y a vowel or a consonant?

As the last letter in the name of a state, it always is pronounced "ee", so it's a vowel.
