SPANISH: OFFICIAL LANGUAGE OF POVERTY AND CORRUPTION
Re: "Whoops!" (Hey, You! July 7): Spanish, the "august" language spoken by more of the world's poor, illiterate masses than any other, is the language of poverty and corruption the world over, while English, the language of freedom and opportunity, is adopted as the lingua franca by all advanced, socially progressive countries of the European community as well as by those Third World countries with aspirations of self-respect.
Not so? Then why all the emigration FROM Spanish-speaking countries TO English-speaking ones and not vice versa? (Never let facts stand in the way of a good argument!)
Sorry, pocho, for your feelings of inferiority. Be assured they're well-earned!
