The decades-old debate over how to refer to [Maryland's Prince George's County] was resurrected after the April 27 airing of an episode of ABC's "Commander in Chief." The show focused on a fictional protest over the county's high homicide rate and a lack of police protection, and some people found its repeated use of the term "P.G." as offensive as its portrayal of the county as a lawless place in need of emergency federal protection.
"The people in this county know that when other people say it, it's meant as a put-down," Sharon Taylor, a spokesman for County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D), said after the episode.
Outside the Safeway at Bowie Town Center, Bob Leedy, a truck parts salesman from Glenn Dale, was loading groceries and his 2-year-old son in his sport-utility vehicle. The lifelong Prince George's resident was matter-of-fact: He'd never heard of any controversy. "Prince George's is a long name," he said. "It's easier to say P.G."
