We need a 6 letter word beginning with "p" which changes its pronounciation when capitalized.
I kid you not, I have no idea.
p.s. Just who is teaching our kids what??

In August, an august patriarch
Was reading an ad in Reading, Mass.
Long-suffering Job secured a job
To polish piles of Polish brass.
A herb store owner, name of Herb,
Moved to a rainier Mount Rainier.
It would have been so nice in Nice,
And even tangier in Tangier.

Polish, as in the country
Polish, as in the product label
Polite, when it begins a sentence...........
and on, and on...
How about going back to when kids wrote sentences and had the spelling corrected? Or, how about simple rote drills on spelling. Make a contest out of it! Gee, maybe we can call it something like a "spelling bee", and get kids excited about spelling...you might even see someone make a movie about that...wow, what a concept!!! :)
