Question: Is there any reference to where Annie Wilkes goes at night when she is angry or depressed?

Answer: According to the book, she goes to what she calls her "laughing place" (itself a reference to the Disney movie "Song of the South" in which brer rabbit sings about having a "laughing place. A "laughing place" is where he goes when he's feeling blue, to cheer himself up. We can presume Annie has some cabin or clearing in the woods where she has made her own "laughing place.

Question: Why couldn't Annie accept the fact that kids in the ghetto spoke differently? People all across the country do, with dialect, accent, cussing.

Answer: Annie is an insane murderer. She does not have a rational world view. Her values and morals are incredibly skewed, to the point she views cursing in general as amoral but will freely torture a man, kill children, and shoot the town sheriff in the back.
