IT'S "FREE REIN"

Once again, I encountered the spelling "free reign" in a magazine. This is starting to happen a lot. NO. This is not correct. The correct spelling is free rein. Get it right or pay the price.

Well, these "egg-corns" are always fun to read.

Of course, as I just twittered to my brother, with the move to tax rain water, perhaps we should concern ourselves with "free rain."

I recently read a book that spoke of "dust moats" in the air. I suspect that wasn't quite what was really meant.
