As long as they spell my name right 

Eloise says I should read the StarTribune more. The Elder objects. Funny enough, today I had a case where three faculty members who received a grant were cited for their work in the local paper, but the wrong person was listed as the lead investigator and the rank of another was incorrect. And then, to make matters worse, when I send a correction to the paper, I "over-promoted" the person whose rank was slighted.

I should note the local paper usually treats me pretty well. They have a file photo, which leads to me getting calls on things I know next to nothing about, like health insurance last week. The reporter is very nice so I start chatting with her, but get all shy when I hear the keys clacking on the other end. I never get calls about central banking, which I actually know something about.
