Some people have too much time on their hands…
Four peaceful protesters, some dressed in full-length black and yellow bee costumes, represented the American Literacy Council and the London-based Spelling Society and stood outside the Grand Hyatt on Thursday, where the Scripps National Spelling Bee is being held. Their message was short: Simplify the way we spell words.
Wait. The Spelling Bee is a sport now! ESPN carries it! Simplifying spelling would be like replacing a baseball or football with a softball!
OK, maybe I have too much time on my hands, too.
