    It’s 5 AM Central time as I write this. Sometime after 7 am today (1/5/08) Council Member-at Large Meagan Barry will be on Liberadio, on WRVU 91.1.

    It’s also on the internets if you’re a safe distance from Vanderbilt.

    I don’t mind reading your “rants.” Once I subjected a group of teens who happened to be stuck in a van with me to a full-on rant about this sort of thing. One of them had made a tiny comment that certainly needed to be addressed, but perhaps my ten minute full-volume speech was excessive…

    I’ll admit I saw your tweet, noted “nashville” and steeled myself for an unpalatable rant. As someone who’s experienced perfect strangers screaming at me to “speak english”, I was expecting something else. Unbelievably, a US citizen once screeched this at me in MEXICO! Thank you for your support.

    Rant away! Estoy de acuerdo.

    You need to do more of this valley writing!

    Muy bien dicho! I am the proud owner of a bumper sticker that says “Crafton es un tonto” so that tells you where I stand.

    Please continue to rant on any subject you like. I enjoyed it!

    Well, muchas gracias for being with me. I was a little worried that this section would be filled with the same ugly I have seen on other message boards and in the paper’s comment sections…

    More to come!

    Estoy contigo mujer!!!

    This is a topic very close to my heart, as I’m a bilingual ed teacher and am doing my part and my best to raise my kids up to high expectations. Some of these are: to respect eachothers’ differences, work hard and have goals, learn English, and never, ever let go of your native language!

    A sign on my classroom door: El que sabe dos idiomas vale por dos…
