The Importance of Correct Spelling During the 2010 Illinois gubernatorial election, Green Party candidate Rich Whitney was the unfortunate victim of a spelling error on the electronic voting machines used at the advance polls. Whitney's surname somehow was misspelled without the 'n'--thus his name appeared on the screen as 'Rich Whitey.' Moreover, of the 23 advanced polling stations, 12 were in predominantly black areas. The 55-year-old Whitney was predictably miffed by the gaffe. Election officials apologized for the spelling error--which was noticed too late to be corrected--but stressed that 90 percent of Illinois voters typically cast paper ballots on election day--where Green's name was spelled correctly. Green finished a poor fourth in the election. He garnered less than three percent of the vote.

Eye know dat goob spulleng iz umportant.
I've been doing a temp job in which I score state school assessment tests for the past two years. And the spelling that I saw while scoring was horrible and you couldn't help but laugh at what the kids were spelling. To make matters worse the United States is ranked 15th in reading, 21st in math, and 31st in science. China is number one.
