In Oakland, CA, ebonics originated because some educators were making a point that language was evolving in some communities, and the education system must recognize that the common language young people are speaking is changing. The goal of these educators was to get the educational funding they need to teach these students English and English grammar, not to legitimatize yet another language the California educational system would have to support.

Beautiful. Is this the first time we have had a real overlord on Slashdot? Bow down to me! But seriously, what I have is a single point mutation, so skipping errors is a reason to be optimistic. I do not know if skipping a single point will increase dystrophin in people with Becker's MD, but skipping an error and running execute something else would be the winner. Actually, what I need is a substitution regex.

As one diagnosed with Becker's MD, a milder form of DMD, I, for one, welcome my new exon-skipping overlords. For those of you who are wondering if you should go to the gym, run, jog, shoot hoops, or play soccer today. I give you the same advice that I give to my three boys: Run, because you can.
