Cute story in the New York Times today about how hipsters are dyeing their hair gray on purpose. As someone who’s been trying to cover it up since the age of 19, I’m conflicted about this trend. But anyway, it prompted me to refresh my memory on the spelling of “gray” vs. “grey.” Turns out both Webster’s and AP prefer “gray.” (“Greyhound” is correct, though.) I vastly prefer “grey,” but I guess I’d better practice what I preach over here.
