Mary, You completely miss the point of the article! In the article there's no mention of immigration or banning the use of Spanish. The former school principal was spot on with her obervation and recommendation that English should be spoken. Now, before you go off the deep end and attempt to lecture me, let me tell you a couple of things about me. First, I grew up in a place where Spanish was the official language and all school instruction was in Spanish. Therefore, Spanish is my first language. Second, I learned English and believe it should be learned by all who come to the US. The English language, like the US culture, is the glue that binds us together. Start carving out priviliges or special treatment for each group in this country and we'll be fighting each other over pettiness. If you open your eyes you may observe that is already taking place. All who come here should learn to speak English! You can learn any other language you wish and speak whatever language you desire on your own time. Lastly, speaking English makes economic sense. Think about all the greater opportunities for those that master the English language and cost savings from having to print literature in other languages in order to cater to those who refuse to learn English. And yes, I also learned economics. May God bless the USA! Molon Labe De Oppresso Liber

Frank, Thanks for a succint and eloquent observation of the why the US is in disarray and where the responsibility resides. Let's hope the US can overcome the damage inflicted by the arrogant fools currently wielding political power and that those coming behind them do not repeat the errors of their predecessors.
