Historic

Just came in to express my mixed feelings on "a historic agreement". It looks right but sounds wrong when read aloud; one has to slow down and sound as if one is burping or stuttering.

And still I believe the more official guidelines indicate "a historic" is correct, in much the same way they recommend against beginning sentences with conjunctions.

So that's my contribution to the Empty Rhetoric.
