RARA-AVIS: RE: more falcon

Don is definitely still doing the tour. This article from Sunday's paper is about it:


On the Frisco thing, it comes from Herb Cain. He even wrote a book titled
"Don't Call it Frisco":


The argument is bascially that it's not respectful enough. Here's a little more dope I found in a newspaper article:

Many credit Friscophobia to the recently deceased newspaper columnist and San Francisco icon, Herb Caen, whose first book, published in 1953, was
"Don't Call it Frisco." Caen was considered by many to be the recognized authority on what was, and what was not, beneath the city's dignity, and to him, Frisco was intolerable.

"Not Frisco but San Francisco," he wrote in typical fashion in the San Francisco Chronicle. "Caress each Spanish syllable, salute our Italian Saint. Don't say Frisco and don't say San-Fran-Cis-Co. That's the way Easterners, like Larry King pronounce it. It's more like SanfrnSISco."
