Mitochondrial references aside, I don't have much good to say about this Thursday offering except that I cannot believe the abbreviation for turnpike is TPKE.  Why would a silent, final e ever be used in an abbreviation?  Yet TPKE is in dictionaries, and I know I have seen it used in the real world.   :-\
