Who but an American...

Yup, I are an American.

Question: When you pick a pronoun to replace "Olympus," do you pick the singular or plural. Do you choose "they" or "it"? If you say "they," then you should also be saying "Olympus are," while if you chose "it" the you should say "Olympus is." I can see arguments for considering a company to be a collection of parts or as a single monolithic entity. As long as you are consistent in your conjugation, I don't care which you pick.
