Attack of the awe-droppers
Regarding the Hoboken Mayor - Do reportes say "Don Zimmer" or "Dawn Zimmer"?  It's getting that bad.
How does Dawn say her own name? -
And shall it be the "Sea-hocks" instead of "Seahawks" in the superbowl? 
How about that commercial: "Are you eating chock?   --  chock???? instead of chalk
Help save the "awe" phoneme before it disappears outright.
