  •  Because of the post office. (0+ / 0-)

    Nobody's going to want to call it "New Columbia" (which is a horrifically stupid name, by the way, as it's not like there's an Old Columbia) when DC is such a fantastic moniker.

    Pragmatic progressivism is the future.

    •  We could keep the DC name. (0+ / 0-)

      If that's your only hangup, why not keep it? As liberalpragmatist said above, some of our states are Commonwealths; why not have it be a state and a District?

      Call Congress and demand 2 Senators, 1 VOTING Rep, and full home rule for DC citizens. Anything less is un-American.
