Christ, try French! I live in Vaudreuil and I have a few friends who live Longueuil! Took me years to be able to spell that on the first attempt!
L-O-N-G-U-E-U-I-L ??? Did they just throw a pile of scrabble squares in the air to get that??? It's pronounced Long-Gay by the way.
"Believe." It took me years to remember that it's i-e, even with the pneumonic (I just assumed it was one of the rule-breakers, like "weird").
There are even more words and phrases that I gloss over when I read them. "Double entendre," for instance. I get through "double" and the first few letters of "entendre," and my brain says, "oh ya, it's that word," and moves on.

Tiger isn't out spoken about that, and doesn't use his position. So unless you are talking about Friend Chicken, no one is going to call Haney a racist for writing a book about Tiger.
Mmmmm. Friend chicken.
(I had fried chicken for lunch BTW. It was delicious. Boneless buffalo wings.)
