Revel in Gina's magisterial demonstration - starting with <onion>! - of the elegant coherence and predictable consistency of what English orthography REALLY is.

And on the other side of the Atlantic this week there has been another giant step towards the liberation of English orthography. On Monday morning Dan Allen’s fifth graders at ZIS (the International School of Zürich) met real script and have immediately embraced it with gusto.

Yes; this has been a week of weeks. Under the banner of the transatlantic triliteral acronyms TED and ZIS the world is no longer the same place as it was at the beginning of the week.
