Linguists tell us that the only thing constituting a
Washington accent is the proclivity to pronounce T's
in the middle of words as D's.  ie. Seadle, seddle,
Bridish, pidiful, midigate, etc.  Anything else is
just others judging us against their own accents.  :-)
Anybody saying SeaTle is as conspicuous as someone
saying Spokain or Oraygone.
