MY PROBLEM:

HEY, I upgraded OS X to Snow Leopaard a couple of weeks ago. And suddenly today when I went to my dock to open dictionary.app I got an error message back saying that my version of dictionary.app can not be used with Snow Leopard.
I've scoured Apple.com for an updated dictionary.app, but found NOTHING.
What gives?
How can I get my dictionary back.
When I do  spotlight search for the app - thinking that maybe it's just lost somwhere on the HD -  spotlight does not find dictionary.app - except for the install that OS X says I can not use, which will not run.
Any ideas out there?
