"It Can't be Easy Being Microsoft.....,"

I replied to a friend's e-mail at work today.
In it she had revealed that, in true Democratic fashion, she had contributed to both Hillary and Obama.

We run Office and Outlook '03 as editor and e-mail client.
Spell check did not recognize "Obama."
It offered me an alternative suggestion.
Did I really want "Osama" instead?

In truth, I can't really blame them too much on this one. They are dealing with the very dynamic English language - that can drive anyone crazy.
