Everything's Fine in America...

(Reprint of letter published in the Tallahassee Democrat, 5/26/06)

What Form of English is Bush Promoting?

In the Associated Press story "Bush wants newcomers to learn English" (May 20), White House Press secretary Tony Snow is quoted as saying, "The president...wants to make sure that people who become Amercian citizens have a command of the English language."

Now, would these new "Murcan" citizens be expected to master the Texified form of English that the president himself has matered, or some more sanitized textbook version? I think the specifics need to be ironed out.
