Date: Thu, 24 Mar 1994 10:15:00 CST From: Edward Callary Subject: record Cokie Roberts is indeed the daughter of Hale Boggs, representative fro Louisians. She is also the daughter of Lindy Boggs, who succeeded Hale upon his death and just retired a year or so ago Although it's been 20 years since I left Louisiana, the general impression was (and I would expect still is) that there are a number of cultured dialects along the Pearl river, but Mississippian is not one.
