English Is the OFFICIAL Language of This Blog
Just so everyone is aware, I am formally declaring English to be the official language of this blog. I know that 99.9% of all entries thus far have been in English, and that the majority of comments have been in English, and that, logically, it's the best way to communicate with readers because it's the language we all have in common, but I feel compelled to make it official. As we all know, a certain group of people want to force Americans to blog in otros idiomas. I'm not going to decir what language I'm referring to, but suffice it to say that a lot of people come to this country to blog in their native tongues. It's got to stop! Why? Because I need to know what everyone is saying in this country even if they're not saying it to me! When non-native speakers talk about me behind their backs (and of course that's what they're doing!), it makes me uncomfortable. If people want to come to this country, they need to have a good command of the English language, unless, of course, they're Americans. It's okay for Americans to butcher the language, especially if they're in positions of leadership.
