There is a difference between Washington and Washington D.C. When I read Washington, I think you are writing where I live. Why does the media, internet, etc write Washington when they really mean D.C.

@trying2learn,
I think because it is the capital...so the first thought when you hear Washington is D.C. More people relate to D.C. (other than those living in the state of Washington) than Washington State.

I know when sometimes some one simply says Washington, I will ask, the state? I have family that live in Washington (the state, not D.C.) so I always clarify.
