English-only in Homer, Illinois
The “Johnson” blog at The Economist reprints an anti-immigration and English-only resolution the town council passed earlier this week. You can read the entire text there, but the first sentence reads:
Homer Township Board recognizes that there most likely no serious problem with illegal immigration, in the Township, but wants to make it policy to enforce the Rule of law in Homer Township.
Methinks they had best learn to write English themselves before requiring others to do so.
The town is presumably named after the Greek poet, but a more appropriate namesake might be another famous, and more recent, Homer. Some of that Homer’s edumacation is evident here.
