Althouse: The Spelling Bee.

Ann Althouse blogs about the televised spelling bee.

I won the school spelling bee in the 6th grade and reached the final 15 or so of the district finals only to be disqualified on the word "fiduciary". I can report with absolute authority that none of the kids who lose will ever forget how to spell the word that sent them home.

"fiduciary ... f-I-d-u-c-i-a-r-y ... fiduciary"
