Marilyn Silva reports that when she was teaching high school in NYC 25 years ago,
students THEN were reporting, "we don't talk like that -- that's the way country
folk talk!" Of course, there's always a mix in big cities between country and
city folk. And ... some people don't know objectively what they do. But ...
that's the report.
