We used to hear a lot about simplified spelling. Why don't we just spell words phonetically, the way they sound? Well, for two good reasons:

1. That would cover up the subtle relationships in the derivation of words.

2. One person's clear, obvious phonetic spelling is another person's funny dialect writing.

Computers have solved that problem.

Dullard "Mutt" Rummy can't spell it, let alone govern it.
