All You Red-Staters...

Listen. Up. I. Am. Only. Saying. This. Once.

Calvary is where Jesus died.

The cavalry is what comes charging over the hill to kill Indians.

Get. It. Right.

And CALGARY is a city in Alberta, home of the no good, low down, dirty stinkin' Calgary Flame.

Wow. I read a script yesterday that had the same calvary/cavalry error in it.

It's spreading like a virus.

I don't think this problem is limited to just Red-Staters.

No, but in the space of a day I heard it misused by two different sources from two representatives of two red states. If anything, they should be the ones that get it right: Aren't they the ones "all about Jesus" and the NRA? This is especially true of Texas - one of the offenders.
