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! > > On Wed, 4 Oct 1995, Larry Horn wrote: > > > They've always been string beans to me.
