“Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way.” -George Orwell

In DC, you can’t go anywhere without finding someone protesting. And usually someone counter-protesting. This time, it’s octogenarians protesting the English language. No, not in favor of it. Not for an amendment to declare English the national language. Not claiming that if “English was good enough for Jesus, it should be good enough for you.”

Nope, 81 year old Roberta Mahoney dressed up in a bee suit to protest the spelling of words like “slow” and “fruit” outside of the DC spelling bee. She, along with other protesters, feel that we’d be better served by changing the spelling to “slo” and “froot.”
