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!
