Such haters in the world today . . .
Contestant Renee Durette was on a roll toward thousands of dollars on the game show "Wheel of Fortune." She had the winning answer to the word puzzle - "Seven Swans a Swimming" - or so she thought. Durette, a Navy Intel Specialist from Merritt Island, Fla., dropped the "g" - pronouncing "swimming" as "swimmin'."
Story here. Couldn't she sue for discrimination, or profilin' or somethin'? If I were her, I'd watch future episodes very carefully and, if the answer is ever "New Jersey", and the yankee contestant answers, "New Joisey", she's gotta case. What about New Yorkers who say "Cape Cad" instead of "Cape Cod" or Yankees who don't pronounce "R's"? I guess it's just the Southern accent that the media masters despise.
