Arvind Mahankali, this years Spelling Bee Champ will not be needing the spell checker to do his job in the future.  He won't be like me wondering and hoping when I type these stories that how I spell is incorrect.  It's a life without the restraints of illiteracy, and compared to him, since I just used spell check to spell illiteracy...twice....will never know.

Mahankali picked up $30,000, a trophy cup, and a ton of free streamers and confetti for his troubles.
