"It hasn't really impeded me, he said. I've definitely managed to navigate it now.....I'm amazed at the mountains made from molehills our 'intellectuals' create. A friend joined the military some years ago and was struck at the taunts he received because of his deep south accent by those people from the northeast. He dropped his accent and didn't tell anyone where he was from as so to fit in. When he returned home from leave after 12 months away he was surprised at how much he had changed and how much every one at home was the same....This isn't trauma... its called growing up...

I met a guy from the hill in North Carolina, no kidding he called himself Captain Bridey but it was spelled Brady, I could barely understand the guy but he was a nice fella. He had grown up in a house with no central heating. Another Missouri lawyer I knew grew up in a house with no indoor plumbing, they thought about water, and they did but a water heater which sat unplumbed on the back porch all his childhood.....met the first one in the JAG Corps and the second one in central MO.
