It's the little things that make me happy

Larry Whitten bought a small hotel in Taos NM, and has set out to make a variety of customer-focused improvements. Improvements like firing every Hispanic on staff on account of their weird names and their inability to talk right English. In response, Whitten asked this rhetorical question:
"What kind of fool or idiot or poor businessman would I be to orchestrate this whole crazy thing that's costed me a lot of time, money and aggravation?"
Yes, it's costed him a lot. But don't back down, Larry, the fight for English as the official language of the United States requires a lot of cannon fodder, and I can't think of a more worthy target. Also, Whitten isn't making a lot of friends in Taos, after referring to its residents as "mountain people" and "potheads who escaped society." I love anyone who makes me feel diplomatic. Rock on dude!
