I grew up in Sant Louis in the ’40’s through he early ’60’s. In those days,
the best American English was spoken in the so-called "St. Louis Corridor.
We not only distinguished "caught" from "cot," but also "horse" from
"hoarse" and "fore" from "four." We really _cared_!

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
