Governor Rod Blagojevich`s surname is of Serbian origin, and back in the Old Country, (or Countries
) it`s spelled Blagojevic, without an h on the end. In defiance of VDARE.com`s helpful advice to to bad speller Max Blumenthal, (below
) reporters around the countryÂ have been trying to spell Blagojevich by hand,
instead of using the copy and paste command, and I wasn`t totally surpised to see a headline about Governor "Blagovich",
which error is repeated several times in Google News
Based on my limited knowledge of Balkan pronunciation, KXMC North Dakota is right in saying that it`s pronounced "blah-GOY`-uh-vich." If he would just go away, we and the North Dakotans could stop worrying about it.
