"i" after "e" why?

In Receipt

You remember the grade school jingle: It's "i" before "e" except after "c" and other special exceptions. Always trying to be the good girl, I followed the rules and never asked why. That is until it dawned on me one day that changes were being made by people who DID ask why. They asked the hard questions, took the needed risks, and made a difference. The question may have been small; the result may have been difficult to measure; but it changed the world -- the butterfly effect.

I still follow most of the rules (still obeying the convention of indenting new paragraphs). But, today I question; I ask why; I challenge the norm in hopes of finding answers, in hopes of making a difference - for the better.
Basically, that's what this blog is about. It's about questions, asking why, and seeking answers. Let's hear it for the butterfly effect.
