Whew, thank you Ceci, I had more or less given up hope. I felt like, they'll do what they wanna do anyway, all I can do is pay attention. So, I'm
glad they've at least specified which parts of the legislation they had problems with.
As you know, I'm kind of in an apathetic rut, so this development is good. It will help restore my faith in people.
Sadly, I agree with some of the dissenters now. I, too, disagree with ballots in different languages. I thought that one of the requirements of
citzenship was a working knowledge of the English language. I feel bad, because I love the hispanic people, of course, living so close to Spanish
Harlem, and I do see the point of other multilingual services, like ESL, or translators for court and hospitals, but, at the end of the day, picking a
name out of a list? That requires only minimal comprehension. Am I missing something about the issue?
