Masters of the King's English

Can anyone pinpoint the moment when people began to insist on inserting an extra "k", or hard "c" in some cases, in the word "escape"?

Brief English lesson.....Journey did not title their great 80's album "Ekscape", Rupert Holmes did not implore his secret lover from the personal ads (who turned out to be his wife) to "write to me and ecscape", and the SUV you drive is NOT a Ford "Eckscape".

Just trying to make a small contribution toward making the world a better grammatical correction at a time.

In our next installment, I will explain that the vehicles that drive in a continuous loop around a track are NOT "Nascars".
