Brokaw on Io

I did not see this, but I wish I had: when the Galileo probe to Jupiter returned images of the moon Io (pronounced "eye-oh"), Tom Brokaw, NBC News' national broadcast anchorman, was heard to say that images had been sent back of the moon "ten". I WONDER IF HIS TELEPROMPTER IS IN ALL CAPS. Bad Reader Larry Brady pointed me to a poem about this very topic in the Baltimore Astronomical Society pages.
