Remember this post about my Northern vs. Southern roots? Well, it seems I may not be the Southerner I think I am!
The post got picked up by a syndicate feed and several websites linked to it, including The News Observer. One reader was kind enough to point out to me that I spelled "y'all" incorrectly. In my post, I spelled it y-a-apostrophe-l-l and the reader explained that it is not a contraction of "ya" and "all" but is a contraction of "you" and "all" and therefore should be spelled "y'all".
I obviously need to brush up on my terminology, you guys. That was wicked embarrassing.
