Reader: The person who told Rachel Maddow how to pronounce "Colorado" was wrong
In a post yesterday, we shared a clip of MSNBC's Rachel Maddow in which a viewer argued that "Colorado" should be pronounced "colo-RAD-o," not "colo-ROD-o," which, in her opinion, makes the speaker sound snobby.
We gave this guideline a "Hell, yeah" -- but one of our reader's didn't.
Its etymology is spanish... "colo rod o". Anyone who pronounces it "colo RAD o", is stupid.
And that goes for those who pronounce Pueblo-"Pyeblo" and Buena Vista-"Byoona Vista" too. You're stupid.
