    you should start a petition, maybe align yourself with those who insist on pronouncing the "t" in often.

    Actually, i do. Why ignore a perfectly good 'T'? How's it pronounced in Or-a-gone?
    And 'Vase' rhymes with base. It makes me cringe when i hear 'vahsss'

    I drove though the town of Prague, OK a few years ago. They pronounce it Praygue instead of Prahgue.

    Random Thought: I watched a live stream of our city council meeting yesterday. I had low expectations, but Geez, these people were morons. Scary!

    Was in 2011. I was working for a company that sold industrial generators and pumps. We traveled all over. I remember Prague but I couldn't tell you if it was near OKC or Tulsa.
