US: The bad news and the good news

I hate to quibble, but the word you want in your final article in last week's University World News is ‘raze’ and not ‘raise’. It does make a difference in the meaning of the article. But, having said that, I love your newsletter. I read it every Sunday morning and forward articles to my friends. At the risk of sounding anti-American, I assumed the author of the piece was from my side of the pond and that, therefore, he/she had never learned to spell?
