    "Interesting!"

    I truly enjoyed listening to each story as I was actually transported into them and felt as though I was a by stander just observing! I plan to get more from this same collection of "The Year's Best..."

    "Yankee Readers?!?"

    Why ruin good southern stories with Yankee readers that don't know how to properly pronounce exclusively southern words like "ain't" and "som'bitch"? Further, Yankee disdain for Southerners always shows in their lookin'-down-the-nose inflections while trying to pretend to accept our ways. Insulting!
