I only said that because most people (even Americans) don't know much about many states. I'm from the "copycat territory" Washington and every time I say that 95% of the time people assume DC. I admit I obviously missed the phrase "US capital" but in all honesty it would be nice if there was some sort of distinction made all around, such as using "the state of Washington" or "Washington State" and "Washington DC". Most people on the west coast I'm sure equate "Washington" with meaning the state rather than the capital.

This probably sounds nitpicky but there really needs to be a distinction made between Washington state and Washington DC....
