¡Español Sólo, Gringo!

Progressive Nashville is thick with irony today (and it's great given Nashville's own claim to embarrassment, Eric "English Only" Crafton): it seems that Puerto Rico is being forced by courts to print it's ballots in English as well as the dominant Spanish in order to protect the civil rights of English speaking Americans!

What protects English only speakers in San Juan also protects non-English speakers in Nashville: the language minority provisions of the Voting Rights Bill. Good to see that the courts are sticking it to the self-serving Eric Craftons of other lands, too.
