I don't understand why you English-firsters won't just learn Spanish. Why won't you? Do you see some value in NOT knowing Spanish?

This English-firster speaks Spanish well enough to do volunteer interpreting at a free medical clinic. Interpreting for poor Latinos, many of them illegal, is very efficient -- it allows me to express my Tea Party hatred of minorities and the poor all at one time.

Whether one knows Spanish or not, English should be our official language.
