No wonder the electorate is clueless--

when the paper of record gets the simple things wrong.

It's C-R-E-I-V-E C-R-I-E-V-E Hall. ::oops::

From the Tennessean blog.

I think it's spelled CRIEVE Hall.

Remember the rule: "I" before "E", except after "C". It's almost as good a rule as "There's A RAT in sepARATe."

The first rule we learned around here was about the 'bossy e' that would mAke the vowel say its nAme.

I'd totally forgotten about that one- good to know for my kindergartner.

I've never heard the bossy-E rule before. I like that one!!
