Seems like hypercorrection to me. Like folks saying Coup de Grah instead of
Coup de Grahss.

> 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 _cach=C3=A9_ and not as "cachet." Of cour=
se, 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.
