    <RetardedMonkey> How would you pronounce this child’s name?
    <RetardedMonkey> She spells her name….. “Le-a”
    <RetardedMonkey> This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA..
    <RetardedMonkey> Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
    <RetardedMonkey> She says it’s pronounced……………..
    <RetardedMonkey> “Ledasha”
    <RetardedMonkey> When the Mother was asked how in the world did she figured it should be pronounced that way……. she said….
    <RetardedMonkey> …”cause the dash don’t be silent!”
    <RetardedMonkey> English language is gone forever
