Chick, from my twenty-five years in education I will tell you the above is 
true.  I have seen many kids with IQ well above 140 who could not spell cat.  
And good spellers are hardly ever creative, just a personal observation, no 
scientific facts but I know many teachers who agree with me as we have 
discussed this many times, at lunch where we could talk about interesting 
things like hostas but if I bring the subject up they just roll their eyes 
back in their heads and give me the oh no here we go again look.  N.

PS never let a spell checker loose without monitoring it.
