    Greek is not on the High School curriculum any more. Neither is French, German or anything other than Spanish.

    And Spanish has almost become a mandatory, not an elective.

    Ich spreche kein Spanisch. Ich werde nicht Spanisch sprechen
    Я не говорю по-испански. Я не буду говорить по-испански
    Ég tala ekki spænsku. Ég mun ekki tala spænsku.

    On the subject of quotes I always remember this one from Margaret Thatcher……
    The events of Sept. 11 are a terrible reminder that freedom demands eternal vigilance. And for too long we have not been vigilant. We have harboured those who hated us, tolerated those who threatened us and indulged those who weakened us.
