Inappropriate Tics

I am a very shallow person. I feel terrible for the family of young April Jones, especially now it's emerged that she has cerebral palsy and needs medication. I feel terrible for April Jones herself. I'm awed by the way the local community has worked together to try and find her.

But I still can't help correcting the radio every time a BBC reporter fails to pronounce "Machynlleth" properly. What have I become?
