Accent Reduction Training

How long would you have to think before concluding that a "Southern Accent Reduction  Training Program" might not be a good idea, especially in Tennessee?

From FindLawThe class, which was to meet for 90 minutes a week for six weeks in August and September, was advertised as being designed to "give employees a more-neutral American accent, and be remembered for what you say and not how you say it."

Now if they'd offered a class to teach people to sound like Shelby Foote, that'd be another story.
