I was watching an old Orson Welles movie from 1958 called Touch of Evil. It featured the famous Mexican actor, Charlton Heston.

That reminds me of a funny thing I see…towns where the official town name pronunciation is incorrect.

  • Salida (pronounced Sahl-I-duh)
  • Pueblo (pronounced Pee-EB-lo)
  • Buena Vista County (pronounced BEW-nuh)
  • Madrid (pronounced MAD-rid). Reminds me of Google Maps pronouncing MontaƱo (a road) without the tilde.
  • Del Norte, Colorado (pronounced Del Nort)
