I admitted a few posts ago that I’m a terrible speller. I have been all my life.  I just have a heck of a time sounding out words.  And now I can easily explain why.  Watch this movie of Ed Rondthaler, former president of the American Literacy Council and author of The Dictionary of Simplified American Spelling, showing just how messed up the English language really is.
