> Usu. cache for cachet

In my experience, hearing random speakers on TV, ranging from  newsreaders
through actors to "guests," cachet for cache seems to be more common.
Maybe. I interpret what I hear as _caché_ and not as "cachet." Of course, I
may be mistaken, since I can't read the speaker's mind.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
