I was confused by Obama’s comment that our children should learn Spanish. Actually the way the world is going Arabic or Farsi might be a better choice, or Japanese. But that’s just me…frankly I’ve always considered English to be a foreign language, at least the grammar and spelling of said tongue. Thank you very much…BG et al for spell check.I was further confused that only 30 of the 50 states have passed legislation making English the official language. I would have thought that after 200+ years the point was moot and we didn’t need laws to confirm what was obvious.
