Hoosiers, California Style

Scene from The Closer:

Boy: We used to go hiking in Poke-a-GON' State Park back home in Indiana.

Hey, Hollywood: In Indiana we say Po-KAY'-gun.

Do you remember when you set a sitcom in Terra Hut? At the very least, call someone who has been in Indiana.
Spelling: Pokagon; Terre Haute

Note to self: Look on the bright side. Perhaps, having paid attention in math class, polygon, hexagon, pentagon, et cetera, the pronunciation seemed reasonable to Hollywood. Nah. Call someone, use a gazetteer, a dictionary.
