Browsing through today’s front pages brought me to this headline about a doughnut incident revealed in the leak of Democratic National Committee emails.
I had to learn more. Then, I read that this is referencing a bizarre episode where a celebrity I know nothing about, singer Ariana Grande, walks into a shop, licks a donut, and declares her hatred of America.
Of course, she’s a Democrat and wants to help in whatever ways she can. She wants to perform at the White House. But Obama’s handlers, quite wisely, politely decline her offer.
Now, so my research for this yawn of a story won’t be a complete waste, I am wondering about spelling and words. Most folks I know spell it donut, not doughnut as printed in the paper. So what should it be? Doughnut or donut? And why?
