    Proper pronunciation of Marquis Gilstrap's first name

    I'm heard his name pronounced at least three different ways. What's the correct/his preferred pronunciation?

    Sorry if aaa. One thing I learned in broadcast journalism: always pronounce a person's name correctly. (And for print journalism, spell names correctly.)

    That's what my friends and I are going with.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
