from Capitals of the World:
"I just took a day trip to DC and I swear no one, visitors or locals, calls the place "Washington". It can pretty confusing with the state! What surprises me most, though, is that even though we were in the area, and everyone knew exactly which "Washington" was being talked about, everybody used the term "DC" or the rare "Washington, DC".
JetPunk is run by how the locals speak of a term. For example, Guatemala is accepted for Guatemala City because (according to Dan) people say "Guatemala" and rarely does one hear someone add the "city" part to it. 'The contrary, Panama City is only occasionally referred to by Panamanians..."
