Daily Grumble

So last night I was watching the History Channel's excellent documentary series The States. Oh, my embarrassment to learn that I've been mispronouncing "Nevada" my entire life. As the state license plate primly points out, it's Nevăda, with the middle "a" said like the "a" in "cat". Ne-VAD-ah. I've been saying "Ne-VAH-da." Dammit.
