"Tascoey and Paul..."
Years ago, I visited College Park, Maryland for my niece's graduation when I received an unusual call. On-the-other-end was a gentleman expressing concern that a particular word I was using in my forecasts and in this column needed his approval. As the conversation continued he noted that copyright and trademark restrictions would apply and be enforced in my usage. He then asked that I explain my meaning of "Tabscoey." I furthered that in "my" weather-jargon, it described heat, humidity and "peppery" conditions. As the conversation continued and after numerous, stories, and laughs, he identified himself as Paul McIlhenney and gave me permission to continue to use the "word." Last night I took a moment to re-review "An Illustrated History of Tabasco" that Paul signed and forwarded to me.
