Funny How This Works

By Keith R. Schmitz

This morning in the Journal's Drive-By Hits section on the op-eds, Paddy Mac carried again the complaint about Barack Obama's comment before a Hispanic audience that maybe we all should be learning Spanish.

Looks like el zapato is on el otro pie.

For the crowd, usually on Charlie's fun house, that complains that we are always subjecting minority kids to the prejudice of lowered expectations, how come what's good for the goose is not good for the anglo ganders, especially since this admonishment comes from a black man?

This is not hard folks. The language immersion schools are among the finest in the system and we should build more of them. My kids and many others went through the German program, and just about all of them can be mistaken by Germans as being native speakers.
