Thanks to why.i.hate.dc, I have discovered the JFK and I reached the same conclusions about D.C.:

“Washington is a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm,” said Kennedy.

I didn’t put it with the same charm on March 17, but I wrote, “It combines the rudeness of New York with the sluggishness of Mississippi.”

(I admit I said this without ever having visited Mississippi. You may accuse me of stereotyping. But of course some of the New Yorkers I know are very nice, so my generalizations went both ways.)
