Dixie , first of all, I have been a teacher for 35 years.  Spelling counts.  I know that Andrew Jackson said "it's a damn poor man who can only spell a word one way." But in this day and age with spell check it is important to spell words correctly and be able to write .  You have talked about being a historian in the future.  Wait til you see your first paper covered with edits and marks for spelling and other mistakes. 

As to making me happy ?  I could care less.  I just didn't understand your arguement as I could not understand what you were saying . 

Ole has posted a good reply to you .  It would be good to listen to him.  He is a wise man.
