That reminds of the old story about the school teacher who was taking a
school census door-to-door.

She knocks and a little boy answers. "May I speak to your mother?", she
asks. "She ain't here". "How about your father? Is he home?" "No, he ain't
here neither." "My Lord", she says, "where's your grammar?" "Oh," he
replies, "she's out in the kitchen making cookies."

We in the Northeast are used to the Boston accent with the "R" added to
words that end in a. Jack Kennedy made us aware of Americar rather than
America. But they say that there is a rule of conservation for the R. The Rs
never gets lost, but just get used on other words. So we have cah instead of
car and then save the R for words like Americar. Interesting dialect.
Especially since I'm originally a mid-westerner.

I guess I fixed it before anybody saw it. It was a huge mistake, that's a
side effect of typing while I have a migraine going on. oh well.
