Actually, it's quite common in human languages for the "h" to be dropped. As a matter of fact, the language Noikee and I speak (Portuguese) did that a long time ago. The h's in all words, such as "history", "hour", "human" and "humid" are silent.
I'm aware of that part (I do speak some spanish and don't ask 'a que whore-a?'). I was referring, specifically, to the misuse of a/an in english, which seems to be a recent and growing phenomenon among 'native speakers' (if they can be referred to as such).
