Quick question: should news reporters be included in the Real Life section?

"This Troper was the Officer of the Deck in a nuclear submarine when the radio supervisor's voice came over the MC sounding absolutely bored and tired: "Fire in the radio room. Loss of all processors. Recommend failsafe maneuver." The complete lack of tension in his voice actually made the initial response a little slow."

I just want to point out that is one of the rare, rare instances where I think the words "this troper" is okay to use. Anyone disagree?

The big long quotation in the Real Life section is unattributed. Don't suppose anyone fancies telling us who said it?

Two-plus years later, the quote is STILL unattributed. Someone either give it a source or cut it out.

Isn't it better that we expand this trope's description? More and more Chuck Yeager is being used as a blue oni to Large Ham's red, symbolizing someone*

that is known for using Dramatic Deadpan more than anything. It's not restricted to pilots in this new sense, which sounds a little too specific.

While we're at it, it could go from Chuck Yeager to The Chuck Yeager, so we could reserve the former to the celebrity.
