No one says they live in "Westbard". Westbard is just a street.

Dyer has declared an end to slow news days in Bethesda. And areas that wish they were Bethesda.

9:33: These crimes covered a large area of the southwestern part of Bethesda. Not a single one of them took place in the area being described by the planning department as "Westbard".

Robert Dyer said...

9:54: Seriously! No actual resident ever called the area "Westbard".

If you said you lived "in Westbard," people would wonder how you had found housing at a strip mall.

No one living in Westbard wants to admit that they live there.

Westbard is historically a part of Greater Bethesda, and many ethnic Bethesdans live there.
