Yes, right, because they can't spel properlee

Question:  Who determines what is the proper way to spell something?

Growing up in New England in the US I'm quite familiar with spellings such as colour, honour, and theatre.  Because the US has many immigrates from many countries there was a blending of words and spellings.  I believe that the US English has changed much over the years compared to the UK English.

I found it interesting that when I spent a little time in England that if I came upon some English folks talking I had a hard time understanding them.  But if I spoke to them and they realized I was a "yank" they would speak English I could understand.
