Missed Opportunity for NBC

So, I was watching Today show today. They have this thing "Where in the World is Matt Lauer?" It's a recurring segment where Matt flys to a new place every day (for a week, I think). And I watch, and I'd get involved, if they let me. BUT THEY DON'T. They gave a clue today to where Matt would be tomorrow. "This place is an anagram of a synonym of a homophone of a even prime number." Two, too, also, Laos (in reverse order of the sentence). Thats the answer. So how do I taut my knowledge? Maybe i could go to the site and put in my email (free data) or put enter some other sort of contest. But no. All they have is a Vote on places you think Matt will go. And you know what, as of today, Laos (on a list of over 200 Countries) has 19% vote. the other countries are between .5 and 1%. So that means of the 7182 respondents, 1364 answered the clue TODAY.
Missed chance to converse, since you asked me.

Award Shows are relevant, dammit! vol.5

More to come. I'm just getting the excitement started. I forsee another smart move by the Andy Awards to be more modern, making modern advertising the star. Can't say more.
