fawcawnars :) John Ritter JR I lost my accent on purpose. Upon arriving at boot camp in Great Lakes it came to my attention that all the personnel in authority were from Western Virginia, Bama, Mississippi, or Arkansas~Oklahoma. It was also apparent that anyone who came or talked like they came from our fine area of the country were getting some really uninteresting details or job assignments to perform. From that time forward I made it a habit to do two things 1) sound like I'm not from anywhere, and 2) make sure no one, without my permission knows or remembers my name. My wife says this works fine except when I visit NYC and the accent returns in about 30 minutes.
