Encoding words in print and taking them in through our eyes is not natural and we should not be surprised if many people cannot do it. Then there is the way the English language is written.

More > Navy. John J. Huber Jr., or ‘Junior’ as he was known back then, was from New Orleans, a 4 hour drive from Pensacola.
