|Ann Landers touted Centre in columns
RELEASED: Aug. 8, 2002
DANVILLE, KYAnn Landers, who recently passed away after a career that spanned more than 40 years as a nationally syndicated columnist, was a fan of Centre and occasionally praised the College in her replies to those seeking advice. The following letter and response was published in the mid-1980s.
"Dear Ann: I was surprised to read the letter from the 'Red, White and Blue Yankee' who wrote, 'Southerners should learn to spell.' It was a most inappropriate and tasteless admonishment from an American who drops the 'u' from 'honour' and 'colour' and spells 'realise' and 'centre,' 'realize' and 'center.' Americans should return to the true English spoken in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Long live the Queen's English!A Canadian Anglophile from Toronto"
