    Huh, I've been thinking it all wrong for some time now. Meh. I still imagine Manny sounding like John Wayne, so what do I know?

    Hey, Clarino,

    I not surprised, amigo. When I gave a lecture at the ITG in London, I was introduced many times as Manny Lori-A-no (long A) which is, I'm sure, the pronunciation you've have in your head.

    Hey, call me anything... just don't call me late for dinner!

    And as for my surname..... with a 'y' by name and with an 'i' by nature. It's pronounced the same either way... :D
