Subject: Correction:Bigots, not Conservatives
Sorry, so many of the other emails had castigated conservatives
that I had them in my mind when replying to Ellen's message. However,
now that I think it over, it seems that many of the messages casting
scorn on those who do not support legislation mandating bilingualism
or who believe that the public affairs of the United States should be
conducted in English implied that the reasons for supporting such
positions are based in xenophobia which is, I believe, an emotion.
All supporters of bilingualism, of course, base their position on unim-
peachably solid, objective, unchallengeably _rational_ assumptions.
