It's Not All Liver

A story came to the copy desk yesterday with "participate" misspelled so badly that all the spell checker could come up with was "part paté."

Here is a poignant spell check story: My infant daughter died in 1994. Her name was Sophie. When she died, a friend's school-aged daughter wrote a little story about her. She ran a spell check on the story, and it did not recognize "Sophie" and came up with the alternative "safe."
