MSNBC= Too Little, Too Late

I cannot tell you how thankful I am that I read MSNBC for my news. Their ability to not only tell the news, but to predict it is astounding and has made me quite the legend of news analysis amongst my friends. I realize that I am telling my secrets to the world right now, but none of my friends read this blog so I feel safe sharing it with you, but please keep it under your hat and please buy a hat to keep it under if you are currently hatless. I am sure a haberdashery is somewhere in your locale and, if not, then the internets are great for such searches.

So anyway at 10:33 a.m. ET, Thurs., May. 29, 2008, MSNBC updated their page with a story entitled “In Miami, Spanish becoming primary language.” I am shocked. I live in Miami and have not noticed it is becoming the primary language. I always kind of thought it was the primary language. I know I have not spoken to my neighbors in the seven years I have owned my home because not a single one of them speak English. Neither do their neighbors or their neighbors’ neighbors. In fact, my whole cul-de-sac is actually a micro South American country unto itself. It was not until this year that a couple moved in that spoke English and that was only because they were my friends and I saw a “for rent” sign. Lucky me, it was in English so none of my neighbors knew it was available.

To be honest, I should not be moaning that MSNBC has finally discovered that Miami is the real front in the battle against illegal immigration considering how many years I have been complaining that the Mexican boarder gets all the attention. I just wish it was sooner rather than later because the damage has already been done here; the battle is over and we lost.

In high school I remember seeing a bumper sticker that read: will the last American to leave Miami please remember to bring the flag. I guess that is going to be my duty.

Así que, ¿va usted a tomar clases de español?:)

Alas, I'm afraid Miami is not alone in its dilemma. It's a strange turn of events.
