RE: ReasonOnLine - fuel for the fire ...

Actually, I think he meant "muy importante" in his opening paragraph.[;)]

But my favorite line from the essay? "If I moved to Australia, say, you can be damn sure that I'd learn to speak Australian." Hmmm...other than a few idiomatic and dialectic differences, I thought Australians spoke English. Perhaps he meant Austria[?][:D]

At any rate, there's something in that essay for everyone either to enjoy or bemoan, and there will be a few who will be simply bored by the whole thing.
