Editing Crontab with nano instead of vi

I know that all of the vi people are going to blast me for this but I like nano much better for quick and dirty editing. So when it comes to editing the crontab here is a quick way to change the terminal editor.
EDITOR=nano crontab -e
You should be able to substitute any editor in the place of NANO, Mac OS X has PICO which I think is the same as nano.
