Every State has its quirky local pronunciations: In Missouri, the town of Nevada is pronounced "Neh-VAYD-uh," and in Oklahoma, Miami is pronounced "My-AM-uh."
And while I knew "Humble" Texas was pronounced "Umble" (kinda like Enry Iggins in "My Fair Lady"), I needed a play on words last night--but apparently a few viewers from Texas weren't having any of it.
After the week we've had, please read the great Homer Hickam in the Wall Street Journal--on the importance of coal miners to this country.
I'm listening to the jaunty "Thieves" by She and Him--as I complete my work for this Friday, heading into the weekend. We hope you can join us tonight.
