I read an article in I think it was Foreign Affairs yesterday. Maybe Foreign Review? Foreign something or other. I never read highbrow magazines like this but the cover story was so incendiary and over the top I could not help myself. Basically it was saying that America is going to hell in a handbasket because of all the Spanish speaking immigrants.

I dunno, I can’t remember reading such a bombastic no-holds barred article ever. It’s central thesis is that America is great because it was started by Protestant English speakers. Totally bold. Probably racist. He had this line: “Would America be America if it were founded by Catholic French, Spanish, or Portuguese speakers? No. It would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.” Ouch.

I have no point, it was just a shocking article.
