Sorry; no offense meant.   It seems quaint in Bicoastalia.

And speaking of quaint, did anyone notice that "nucular" is alive and
well in the White House?  President Bush, in announcing his missile
shield policy, must have said "nuclear" seven or eight times during
speeches excerpted on the PBS Lehrer News Hour, and each time it was
"nucular".  I wonder if Safire will notice.
