    Re: New York Times Buckles to Pressure from Scotch Snobs.

    No one should think I'm advocating one worldwide spelling. I'm comfortable with both being used, I just get tired of -- yes, scotch snobs -- who won't accept that it is one word, with one meaning, but alternate spellings. People continually make so much of getting it right. Everything written about whiskey has to address it, so people can make sure they use the right spelling in reference to the right whiskey, and they twist themselves up with formulations like "whiskey and whisky" or "whisky and bourbon" or "whisk(e)y," when it is so unnecessary. Whiskey (or whisky) is made in Scotland and Ireland and Kentucky and Tennessee and Ontario and Alberta and Kyoto and so on.
