you kids get off my lawn

Dear world: it's "Bury the lede," not "bury the lead."

I like spelling the color word "grey" myself. I'm just saying that of all possible usages to get exercised about, lede/lead is not my first choice for demonstrating the benighted ignorance of the user. There is room for informed difference of opinion on the matter.

Talk to me about people who use "begs the question" when what they mean is "raises the question" and can show you as much towering fury as the next pedant down the road.
