No Se Habla Aramaic

Reuters reports that an umpire in Boston who ordered a Little League baseball team to stop speaking Spanish during a game last week was barred from officiating at any more games this year. When Preston Smith was governor of Texas in the 1970's he vetoed a bill that would have allowed the speaking of Spanish on public school grounds. His comment with the veto was "If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it's good enough for Texans." Pretty hard to argue with logic.
