Personal Insight

Jessica comes from a working-class Baltimore family. Though she has dutifully relearned the pronunciation of words like water (not "wooder") and wash (not "warsh"), she continues to inquire about "dem O's" and refuses to participate in the singing of "Shout" at the seventh-inning stretch. It’s an abomination.
