There are many great Tracys out there -- to say nothing of the cities and towns named Tracy … and one very special “Nightly News” senior producer. NBC’s Brian Williams reports.

>>> last night we did a story about a woman named happy thanksgiving because her hippy parents thought it was a great idea when she was born on thanksgiving day 43 years ago. we went on to say hippy parents had fun with names. instead of opting for conventionalal names like tracy. well, we heard from several tracys on twitter overnight insisting they were not conventional. the truth is we couldn't agree more, regardless of spelling. from morgan to the ullman to chapman and her "fast car" there are great tracys out there including spencer tracy and dick tracy say nothing of tracys, six in the u.s. and more in canada and tranfrance. last night's mention was aimed at our senior domestic producer tracy lyons, among the great and completely unconventional tracys of all time.
