Spelling bee protest is d-u-m-b

Protestors showed up Thursday at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington. I’m all for free-speech. Protest is a fine American tradition. But these folks need to get a life.

Their complaint: Spelling needs to be simplified. They distributed pins that said “Enuf is enuf. Enough is too much.”

Dumb down spelling? Nonesense.What’s next, simplying the numbering system? Math is hard. Maybe we should get rid of some numerals. I’ve never liked 5 and I’m not too fond of 3. Let’s dump them now.
