Actually, I’m in and out during the debate. Kudos to John Edwards, though, for keeping his dulcet Southern accent. It even sounds like he’s playing it up at times. Al Gore lost his while he was Veep, So when he spoke at the Dem Convention and sounded like Boss Hogg, I nearly fell out of my seat!
(FWIW, Thor has worked hard to lose his accent. I miss it, and I blame every Northerner who assumes that Southern accented folks are dumb.)

A huge thanks and good luck to Evan. He was the CEO of Blogger, the tool which made it easier for thousands (including me) to have a voice online. He’s leaving Blogger (now a part of Google) to take a break and live life. Well met, Ev.
