Overseen in an e-mail that arrived in my inbox recently:

Due to emergency route canal surgery, [our guest] will not address [the] staff on the Legislative Process in Education today at noon.  

Maybe he realized he needed a root canal en route to the canal?

    We have a route canal here in NYState, but it wasn’t “emergency”–it took years to build the Erie Canal.
