It’s bee time, baby. Last year, speller Samir Patel broke my heart. But he’s back again this year to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Some local media outlets have adopted Richardson’s 12-year-old Amy Chyao. But my money’s on Fort Worth’s Samir. Seriously. That’s not just an expression. Daddy’s got five dimes on that kid. Make me proud. So far so good: Samir (and Amy) have advanced to the third round.
