    the deepest, slowest, southern twang I have ever heard.  

     This guy was literally a rocket scientist and I heard him give a talk at a conference and later spoke with him at length.  I have to admit,  hearing him with that almost cartoonish accent speaking of topics so over my head and beyond my non-scientist education was...a strange experience.

    Any time our prejudices are challenged, we can either ignore it, or use the experience to learn and grow into better people.
