I Find This Kind Of Funny

Being Canadian I find this kind of funny.  Making English the official language would strike me as a bit ridiculous. Anyone who can crack a book can find out that there a more Spanish speakers in the US then Anglophones.  Making a minority language your official language would be kind of silly.  Then again this is the same country where Blacks and Latinos are considered minorities even though they are the largest population groups in the country.  Go figure.  Then again I most of the people in power are rich English speaking white guys.

Hedge Hippie I love you and I'm thinking a summer wedding ^_^ PS. The little box on the side of the page says "Translate this story in Spanish, Italian, French, German, Italian, Chinese, and more! (It's funny partly because of the topic of discussion, and partly because they listed Italian twice :))

PS - had I been in a position to do so, I would have put Sotomayor on the Supreme Court bench. I'm glad she's there.

An official language is as ridiculous as an Equal Rights Amendment. Vive la difference! Diversity and difference add to life, each offers opportunity to learn new things. Would you want to eat the same dish for every meal? Pfaugh!! <br />

Oh, could it make a difference that I am a Schwartze, female, born and raised in USA, like to try cooking new dishes and want to learn three or four more languages besides American English? Just askin'

Isn't that the truth...
