Why did I know, when I read the first paragraph of a March 13 story about the Minnesota state legislator who wants to require "clear English pronunciation" from instructors at state colleges and universities, that the lawmaker was going to be a Republican?
Is there no tolerance in that party for any diversity? Must we all be white, male and Christian to belong to the GOP? Must we now all speak with the same accent?
Shame on Rep. Bud Heidgerken for his bigoted proposal. Thickheaded proposals -- like his -- are more of a danger to our multicultural community than a thick accent.
