Michael, please ... sometimes you're so out to lunch.  Some years ago I
actually signed a petition *against* bilingual education (this got me on
some Republican mailing lists long ago - which mailings I still get to this
day, hehehe).  Having learned 4 languages by the time I was 9 years old
made me a true believer in the ability of children to learn languages.
(Ahh, but once those children hit adolescence - when it comes to learning a
new language - all is lost.  Those plucky grey cells turn into a block of
grey cement.)

As to the rest of that paragraph you've written, I won't even dignify it by
responding ...
