Great Quote

This is a great quote that I read on a web site minutes ago. I know it is stating the obvious, but definitely something to keep in mind for those of us who are developing idns.

Willy Brandt, a former German chancellor, once said: "If I'm selling to you, I speak your language. If I'm buying, dann muessen Sie Deutsch sprechen [then you must speak German]."

It one thing not being able to speak their language when selling to them. It is entirely another to expect them to speak English to each other when trading between themselves. :p

Judge orders men to learn English

The three defendants must take an English test at the court next year
A judge in the US state of Pennsylvania has ordered three Spanish-speaking men to learn English or go to jail.
The trio, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery, were told they could remain on parole if they studied English and got full-time jobs.

Judge Peter Olszewski said the unusual sentence was supposed to help the men. They will serve their full jail terms if they fail an English test in a year.....

Perhaps they will try this in Iraq as well? :p

Now that's what I call constructive judging.
