Today, I was talking with some coworkers (we all work in a middle school),
and one of them started talking about something he heard on NPR that
claimed no one west of the Mississippi River has a dialect.  I said,
"Everyone has a dialect."  We sort of spiraled into does not/does too, and
then I dropped it.

Anyone hear the story he was talking about?  Can you give me details?  And
can someone verify for me:  Does everyone have a dialect?  If I'm wrong,
I'll apologize tomorrow.
