Opening paragraphs.......................

The physicist Richard Feynman once remarked that every time a colleague from the humanities department complained that his students couldn't spell a common word like seize or accommodate, Feynman wanted to reply, "Then there must be something wrong with the way you spell it."
-Bill Bryson, from the Introduction to Bryson's Dictionary of Troublesome Words:  A Writer's Guide To Getting It Right
