Spoken by reality-TV personality, "Dr.G: Medical Examiner." I can't recall
ever having heard a pronunciation other than "by INference," before.

Coincidentally enough, the doc is a native of StL, though she's some twenty
years younger than I am.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
