Petting a Peeve

Just finished a story in How the West Was Wicked and I just had to come and make a comment to all you writers, editors, and proofreaders out there. This is not an isolated instance of the peeve I am about to pet, just the most recent example I have seen. I’ve noticed it quite often lately, so I want to point it out.

A horse is led by the reins.

A king reigns over his kingdom.

The only time a horse reigns over anything is when he is Bad Horse and runs the Evil League of Evil.

Thank you, that is all. 🙂
