And while we're on the subject, it's "machurity" NOT "ma-toor-ity." "Ma-toor-ity" is like nails on a chalkboard.  Ahh, it's giving me the willies RIGHT NOW.  It bothers me even more than when people pronounce the "t" in "often."  Or when Dan says "harr-ible" instead of "horrible."

Perhaps a pronunciation post is in order...
