Another deep thought from Idaho..
Some Republicans (not all I know) in Northern Idaho strike again. Bonner County Republicans refuse to put the word "fiesta" on their committee booth - even though that's the theme for the BC fair this year. They're sticking with the word "celebrate" since "we speak English in this country." REALLY?? What's to go next I wonder? Tamales = corn wrapped shredded pig. Tortilla = flat flourly toasted thingy, burrito = beans and meat with cheese in flat floury thingy. But what about those other pesky words that are so unAmerican. "French" fries = fried potatoes that cause heart attacks. Gyros = dead lamb on a flour stick. I was always under the impression that our language is mainly just an amalgam of other, older languages. But hey, maybe speaking only "English" words will limit their vocabulary and we won't have to hear them talk. Dare to dream.
It's people like this that push me even farther left. They are crazy!
