Senate: English Should Be Our National Language

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:49 pm

Via Instapundit comes word that the Senate has passed the Inhofe Amendment, which would make English the national language.

Seems like a no-brainer, ¿no es verdad?

UPDATE: Is anyone here surprised to learn that Harry Reid says that the amendment is racist?

Yeah, me neither.

Books!

Woo-hoo! My new Michael Connelly book, Crime Beat, just arrived in the mail!

I have read all his books, and I am a true crime fan, so I’m guessing this will be a treat. Reviews on Amazon aren’t good, but I’m not Connelly’s usual audience. I’m more interested by non-fiction than I am by novels. I think it will be fascinating. I’ll let you know whether I was right.

Also, I just finished listening to the Books on Tape version of Finders Keepers, by Mark Bowden. He reads it himself. It’s a great story, and I’m eager to see the apparently mediocre movie based on the story: Money for Nothing.

Finally, I will be getting an advance copy of the new Anonymous Lawyer novel. Blogging has its privileges.
