Nation needs common language

Dear Editor:On the Aspen Daily News front page, June 3, the lead article states: “Rotary Club Gives Spanish A New Spin.” Are we interested in becoming a country with a common language and equal laws, so we can communicate in order to affect our destiny with clarity, or shall we continue to be the divided country we are rapidly becoming?According to this article, Carbondale is now 50 percent Spanish-speaking. Ask any teacher how much time it will take to teach Spanish to our American English-speaking students in all their classes.As long as I have your attention, I would also like to know: What is the population of Mexico and does the U.S.A. have the resources to accommodate all those people when they come here to take over our country?Eloise IlgenCarbondale
