I read in the paper this morning that a local 10 year-old girl won a statewide spelling bee and is now one of 273 contestants who will go on to the Scripts National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. Her name? Anjithaa Radakrishnan. Hey, after learning to spell her name, is it really surprising that she can spell words like “supernumerary”*?
