  2. NPR: Spelling Bee Craze Moves into the Bars

    My first time being interviewed on NPR, for a Weekend Edition story by Neda Ulaby. I’d won a spelling bee.

    The passion for spelling fueled by youngsters sweating it out on TV in the National Spelling Bee and in the documentary Spellbound is spilling over to an adult crowd. Watering holes in Washington, D.C., and many other cities are sponsoring "bar bees" that take a more relaxed approach to the competition.

  4. EMW turns 21

    Hey, Tom, I had a US map puzzle when I was a kid, too.

    I showed it to my son and he loved it–and learned his states from it.

    Now he’s moved on to this incredible geography-teaching website at sheppardsoftware.com.

    It’s an excellent resource, so much so that now he knows his state capitals, Canadian provinces, and Central and South America.

    He’s working on the rest of the world.

    Did I mention he’s four?

    Oh, and we have video of him putting together that US map puzzle (one piece for each state) at twenty-seven months.

    Surely this nation’s high-school students can do that, too.
