Hear, Hear!

It’s one of my favorite phrases, and one that should be used far more often, but as I sat down to write it on a paper, I had to think of how it is spelled.  All instinct told me “here, here!” but that made no sense to me.  Sure enough, the phrase comes from the Parliamentary phrase “Hear him! Hear him!”  Come to think of it, that is a much better phrase, and that is the one that should be used more often.
