So last night was the big finals of the national Spelling Bee.  And it drew protesters:

Yes, they're serious.  They're from the Simplified Spelling Society!  They explain their aims thusly:

One of the picketers, ALC chair and SSS member, Alan Mole, from Boulder, Colorado, puts it this way: "Our odd spelling retains words like cough, bough, through and though. This increases illiteracy and crime. Fix it and you fix a host of problems. We want to fix it."

Get that folks?  It's the spelling that increases illiteracy and crime.  Spelling must be stopped!

My first grader was saying something similar this morning. I made him do his spelling anyway, poor child.
