Today I received an e-mail from AARP extolling the benefits of belonging to that organization. With the flip of my "mouse" I had the alternative of reading the message printed in English or Spanish.
Later in the day I made a purchase at Wal-mart. I was instructed to record my credit card purchase in English or Spanish.
When I returned home, I found the assembly instructions that came with my purchase to be in English and Spanish.
All of the above is a sign of the times and although some will deplore it, there is no turning back time.
English is and should continue to be the official language of our government, but the language of business and commerce has become bilingual.
The latinos in our country are learning English at a fast pace. It is in their best interests to do so.
It is in the best interests of politicians, come next election, to heed the concerns of the Hispanic-American voters who now are the largest minority in this country. It may spell the difference between their election or defeat.
