English as She is Spoke

<rant> Twenty percent of the words in the title of Richard Ford's The Lay of the Land are misspelled! In the title! You're telling me not even his editor remembers the word "ley?" I suppose I shouldn't be surprised: Firefox doesn't know the word. It snubs me with its little red dotted line, suggesting instead "la," and "lye," and even "hey" and "levy." </rant>
