    Off Mic will be silent for a week, as I’m away catching some R&R on Cape Cod. Which, by the way, is the proper name for the peninsula New Englanders refer to as “the cape.”

    That always annoys me. Do they think there’s only one cape on earth? Don’t be so parochial.

    And then there are the people who vacation in “the South of France.”

    The what? Do you say “the south of Italy?” When I hear that, I always reply that I grew up in “the South of Texas.”
