I thought things were weird when I read that the official language of

Norway was Norwegian. Now I hear that people oppose legislation mandating

bilingualism. I admit that I have not read every bill offered in every

state legislature, but I would be very much surprised by one which mandated

bilingualism. (I take that to mean legislation which decrees that any or

all of the citizens of a state must be or become bilinguals.)

Please let me know if there is such a proposal. If it reaches Michigan, I

want to start cranking up my whatever-langauge-it-is before I am sent to

the language hoosegow (sp?).
