    Re: gray vs. grey—I always use gray. First, because it’s better. Second, because I heard once that “grey” was the British spelling, and regardless of whether that was true, it was enough of a reason to make sure I always used “gray.” Third, Google Ngram finds “gray” to be more common, especially over the past 20 years, thanks to a trend that shows it now appears nearly twice as often as “grey” (http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/graph?content=gray%2Cgrey&year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=0&smoothing=3).

    Just sayin’.

  2. Ah. You make a good point, except I tend to like to be the uncommoner choice. For those of only the most discerning taste, if you will.

    Which I realize doesn’t align with the whole bestseller-dom thing.

    I never said I make sense.
