This is nice, do you have any clue to where is was originally published. I search for it on Google, but only came up with conjectures and unsatisfying quotes with no original reference.

Most websites attribute this to Mark Twain, but this may have been authored by M.J. Shields in a letter to the Economist. I was unsure of the authorship myself and posted it under Mark Twain in my own internet presence since I knew there was mention of spelling reform in his autobiography.

Do you really think it's neccessary for us to chnage the language when all the under 20s do it for us on an almost weekly basis! lol
Surely it would be better to teach grammar and grampa too :)
