    Go look at a map of Washington DC in Google Maps and compare the location of Crystal City to where it would be in your map of Washington DC. Technically speaking, Arlington National Cemetery is not in DC, it's in Arlington, Virginia. Crystal City is part of Arlington, Virginia. But again technically, the Pentagon is in Washington DC, although it looks like it's not on the Google Map. It looks like it's in Arlington, right above Crystal City, outside the DC limits, but it's not. The DC/Virginia boundaries are really weird.

    Technically speaking, Crystal City is in Northern Virginia, part of Arlington.

    Technically speaking, Crystal City is Washington, DC metro.

    No, I'm not, because the Northern Virginia proposal had nothing to do with Crystal City:





    The property adjacent to Dulles Int'l Airport is quite a ways west of DC.

    And, besides, Crystal City is in Arlington which is part of DC metro, so I am not wrong, sorry.

    I don't even have a dog in this fight, so let somebody else argue. I'm gonna go vote and hope I don't have a bad day.
