No to making English "official".

I read your debate about efforts to make English the "official" language ("Make English the Official Language?" 3/26/07). I don't think such a move is fair to people of other ethnic groups. What if you only spoke a foreign language, and there were no signs in that language? Wouldn't that make you feel bad?

If someone who was Spanish, for instance, was visiting the United States, he or she could have great difficulty getting around.
