Spelling Bee Brouhaha

There's nothing worse than a sore loser... except maybe a litigious sore-loser Dad.

In a recent local Los Altos School Spelling Bee in California, a mistake was rightfully settled, declaring that two spellers should go on to the regional spelling bee.  This is all good.  Then, when a third boy's sore-loser dad decided he didn't like the outcome of the regional bee, he filed a $2-million lawsuit against the local sponsor.  Fortunately, the court told the dad to get over it.  You can read the brief story here:
