Mar 28th 2008 10:36AM J'aime bueaucoup que ma pays est bilangue. Je pense que ce n'est pas une probleme si il y a du traduction ou des courtes dans l'autre langue.
But I think in this case the judge hopefully wasn't making a statement against the men's language skills but instead was trying to help them to do well in the US without a criminal lifestyle. - If he let them off completely, then if they didn't find jobs they'd end up in Jail in a few years anyway.
Bilingualism doesn't cost much. Strong unilingualism can - especially in a country with a high rate of bilingualism anyway.

Tiny little strikers protesting you shoving money in their dirty undies?
Feb 26th 2008 9:35AM does $100/day pay you enough to stay in your cabin?

Anyone see the biggest loser a few weeks ago where Bernie smeared the temptation chocolates all over his face instead of eating them "my goal was to be as close to the chocolate as possible without eating them"
Feb 15th 2008 2:52PM i'm seriously drooling. Wonder how I can come up with an excuse to get one...
Feb 15th 2008 10:07AM Vets or not, they're still people who deserve better. Even the people who got temporary FEMA homes are pretty screwed now. The things are toxic, unsafe to live in, but they're stuck in them until at least summer:
Feb 15th 2008 10:05AM Airplanes are starting to get a lot more freebies these days. Kraft was handing out breakfast boxes with a new cream cheese recently, now cameras on business class.
It could be a way for airlines to make up for all the service cuts - find sponsors to provide meals and goody bags with hefty advertising.
Feb 7th 2008 4:45PM Ooops...we're on the same page - so I guess my answer to your question would be that Texans themselves think that Texas has a distinct identity from the states, but must not realize that in the eyes of most foreigners that difference is that Texas is the worst of the US to an extreme, and not all the lovely things that Texans are proud of.
