Letter: Writer agrees with Joyce Coomer on lost word skills

Sandra Bell writes:
I agree completely. I've also noticed that spelling words correctly is becoming a lost skill. I know there are companies who spell words wrong, on purpose, so they will get attention. I understand that the main goal of advertising is to get people to focus on that particular company but it seems to be getting out of hand. Business names, streets, even tv shows are spelling everything wrong. No wonder kids in school have such a hard time with spelling. --Sandra Bell
