Are you accomodating all the non-norwesters when you write 'Washington
state'? I never heard that phrase until I came to the Midwest. If you
mean the city with all the crime and where our government sits (some
might consider it redundant that I wrote both), ya say 'Washington D.C.
Also, "Vancouver" means the city in Washington that is really a suburb of
Portland. If ya mean the city in Canada, it's 'Vancouver B.C.' At least
that's what this Salemite says.
I drink pop and eat both green and string beans. String beans are a type
of green beans. String bgeans are the ones that are skinny, like strings!

They've always been string beans to me. "Green beans" sounds to me as though
it would be said by those who say "pop" instead of "soda". (This presumably
reflects my New York City roots.) Larry
