"Washingtonians often say there are two cities: official 'Washington' versus the real 'D.C.' To some, they barely touch. And it is tricky to express the mix. Our nation's capital is always with us as a mental newsreel of big events and marbled aura. By contrast, local D.C. tends to be homespun, surprisingly quirky, with some rebel energy."
