A few years ago while visiting my daughter at Georgetown, we dined at one of those trendy little cafes. We have a clearly discernable "Philadelphia accent." Our waiter was foreign. I asked for a drink of water. The waiter replied, "Yes, Ma'm, I'll take your order." Marie Nigro English Department Lincoln University Lincoln University, PA NIGRO[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
