Is this the reason many phone ops now give the exchange as
"59 Mike Alpha" (for Massachusetts)?

In this particular scenario, of course, it doesn't help that
the "a" and the "s" are next to each other on the keyboard.
Would the Dvorak keyboard eliminate that?  Even if it did,
it would probably engender new errors.
