    I would love to have a magic wand for good spelling. "Stregnth" (the chair with the dog under it) would automatically become strength. Oh, wait a minute, my cell phone does that already and changes my words to stuff I never intended. Like for example your fumble fingers write "custers" where you mean customers, but you get custards instead.

        So much material now is obviously "spell-checked but not proofread." In my earlier days I did formal proofreading of "legal" copy for a newspaper. That's where one person reads the original material aloud, speaking every punctuation mark (no, NOT in Victor Borge's style) and spelling out every slightly weird word or proper name. Occasionally we would discover errors in the original material and need to contact the lawyer's or government agency's office for clarification. "Did you REALLY mean to spell r-e-c-i-e-v-e instead of r-e-c-e-i-v-e?"

        Over in my pony-ride department we sometimes provide ponies for a local church, First Calvary Baptist Church. They told us that they are extremely careful that it never gets spelled Cavalry.

    I am sometimes heard to intone, with the cold seriousness of a funeral dirge "I am about as subtle as the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center Complex." I make the statement, then let it simmer. Nobody takes the bait -- but it does communicate clearly where I stand.

    Thank you for keeping the accuracy of what transpired alive.
