You can use the plural here, too, but this saying usually appears
with the singular. Sayings can do weird things (this one, perhaps,
because of a specific confusion as it was being adopted to Slovak:
it's not native, it's one of the "multinational" sayings). The verb
normally has to be in the plural with such subjects no matter what,
just like you say.

>My high school alumni assoc. has published a book about thehistory of the West Park area in Cleveland, titled 'From Rockport to
Westpark'. It starts with the geologic past and goes through to
the present. There are 326 pages and over 340 pictures, many
never published before.
Besides the area itself, there's coverage of other things pertinent to
the times such as disasters in the greater Cleveland area and some
amusement parks such as Luna Park and Puritas Springs.
Anyway, I know of number on the list are from Cleveland and thought
you might be interested. You can get info. and an order blank (or
order on-line) at jmhalumni.com .
