So this reboot is supposed to make all of Heston's posts better? I'm skeptical.
I think he'd spell it "sceptical," which is reason enough.
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)

I've been noticing a lot more of the single quotes among the younger generation lately too. I don't get it.

My students do it constantly (but, then, so do a lot of academic clients). If there's a consistency, it's that stuff that you're definitely quoted properly uses doubles, but if it's in the textual form of air quotes, they use singles. It's so common and the distinction fairly clear that I can only assume it's being taught at the secondary level.

How do those of us that are no longer in school keep up with things like this? There should be an amber alert on my phone or something.

Just be glad that it's not part of your job description to do battle with that crap. I want to talk with students about thinking more boldly, not explain over and over the difference between a footnote reference and a bibliographic one. But guess which one occupies more of my comments in papers?

Great song, the best thing Genesis ever did. How anyone can deny that is a top tune is beyond me.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
