Fellow ADSers,

I had a nice talk with Jennifer about "dialect reduction" (just in time, I
think, since she had spoken mostly to speech therpists and the
linguistically insecure who seek such training). I don't mean to dissuade
any others of you from calling or contacting her, but I thought I would
note that ADS got its digs in.
