It is just idiots not knowing when the H is silent or not. For all those who aren't sure, the H is not silent in the word historic, therefore it is a historic, not an historic. Or an istoric, as they pronounce it. No one takes istory class, get an istorectomy, or is an ispanic. Please people, learn to use the language properly.
