Everytime I open DCF, there is squats in the upper right corner: "Burque doesn't rhyme with quirky." In a starburst yet. Yes, it's true. Burque doesn't rhyme with quirky. But Albuquerque does. It's not AlbuquerKAY. Why does the Alibi and DCF persist in trying to coin this awkward neologism? Too many syllables in the original for ya? And don't tell me that a hundred years ago they dropped the first R in Alburquerque. That was evolution, not contrivance.
Then there's Bosque. Like Albuquerque, it doesn't have a hard 'O' unless you're a rich Anglo émigré to Santa Fe (which does rhyme) or a "local" broadcast personality from who knows where. Are they trying to sound more Spanish while speaking English? Ask anyone who grew up here or anyone from Bosque Farms: It's Bosky, not Boe-skay.
If you want withering scorn from a local in San Francisco, just call it Frisco.
Can we do any less?
End of Rant. Whew. Got that one off my chest.
