It's an easy assumption to fall into that if someone sounds different that they must be "from the south". South of what? In the case of Montana, Washington & Idaho, south of Canada. But in the case of Alaska, south of the North Pole?

No biggie ... just setting the record straight.

i never assumed. however, one of us did. which part of what i wrote explicitly said that he sounded a man from the south? hmmm... i missed that. i was praising him for his actions not his diction. yeah all of us are a product of our environment. it just happens that troy was a product of the south. you make it sound like i said anything remotely ominous.
