On most Wednesday mornings, I’m joined by my friend Deborah Newell for a segment in which we make fun of our state, which we knowingly refer to as FloriDUH. But if you listen carefully, you’ll hear that Deborah has a distinctive accent which sounds nothing like the variety of accents.
That’s because, although she’s lived here for many years, attended college in Gainesville, is married and has raised her three boys here, she never went through the process to become a citizen…. until now.
As she told us this morning, Deborah always said that if Bernie Sanders were to run for president, she would become a citizen. He is, so she did and is now an American citizen! We celebrated this morning!here
