lliteracy in Louisiana?   (don't even try to top this!)

How would you pronounce this child's name?

She spells her name "Le-a"
So how would YOU pronounce her name?
Leah? .......................NO.
Lee - A? ................. NOPE.
Lay - a? ............ NOT A CHANCE.
Lei?..........NICE TRY, BUT GUESS AGAIN!

This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA..
Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her child's name wrong..
She says it's pronounced "Ledasha."
When the Mother was asked how in the world she figured
it should be pronounced that way, she said,
"cause the dash don't be silent!"
So, if you see a name come across your desk like this,
please remember to pronounce the dash.
And if anyone axes you why, tell them it's 'cause the dash don't be silent!
Someone... pleeeeze, pleeeze tell me dis don't bes true!
Surely, someone bes jokin' wid us?!?! They live among us, they vote, and they breed

I'm a mongrel

I'm English, Irish, German & Creek (Native American) - those are the ones I know about. If I were a dog, I'd be a mongrel. And I could care less. I'm alive & I'm an American.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).
