DC, abbr.:

1. the district occupied entirely by the city of Washington; chosen by George Washington as the site of the capital of the United States and created out of land ceded by Maryland and Virginia” [Princeton via Google…apparently they never took the time to amend the defintion after Virginia took its land back]

2. the DC metro area; does anyone say “I’m from Crystal City!”?*

4. the White House, Capitol building, National Mall, Smithsonian, memorials, etc., along with attendant vendors, that comprise the only “DC” most Americans are aware of [note: occasionally add Georgetown]
