Thirded or fourthed.

People who live in the Bay Area call San Francisco "the city." People who live elsewhere in the country call Manhattan (or St Louis, for all I know, as well) "the city." People who live in London call the old town center, which is now the Financial District, "the City" (uppercase usually).

I probably am one of those "transplants trying too hard," but "Frisco" just sounds dumb. Sorry Doc.

I like this thread though!
