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
