A skunk by any other name...

Question of the day: How do you spell your name Colonel? (Speaking to the Libyan leader--at least at the moment he is the leader. Won't be much left if he keeps leading the way he has this last week.)

Gadhafi (according to the AP)
Gaddafi (from Reuters)
Kadhafi (from AFP)
Qaddafi (in the CSMonitor)

Why are there so many spellings of this guys name?
Are people afraid to ask him how to spell it?
Does HE know how to spell it?

SayUncle spelled it QDFY the other day, and implored others to pick one version & stick with it.

You & he are correct.
