    •  Lost in the translation (2+ / 0-)

      I once worked in a shop with a US born Cuban American who grew up in a Spanish speaking home. His primary language now is English. There was also a Puerto Rican working there. He told me that presented a slight problem. He had to translate from Puerto Rican Spanish to Cuban Spanish to English and back to speak to her in Spanish.

      Throw in the translation from conservative to progressive as another layer and the problem becomes obvious.

      There is a point to made there, but starting with a link to Jonah Goldberg at The American Conservative pretty much guarantees introducing some bias and people will rightfully take offense.

      I'm a Vietnam Era vet. I'm also an Erma Bombeck Era vet. When cussing me out and calling me names please indicate which vet you would like to respond to your world changing thoughts.
