Re: “Ask a Mexican!

The main reason there are variations in Spanish throughout the Americas is because of the different regions in Spain the original immigrants were from. The Carribean and seaside areas were dominated by the Spanish navy while the army took over the inland areas. The sailors came primarily from Andalusia and the army came from Castile. I had a college friend who was Cuban (he had rowed himself to Florida in the mid-60s). I went with him to Tijuana and he had a fit about how bad the Spanish of the Mexicans there was.

The United States used to have huge regional differences, to the point that during the Civil War soldiers from New England could not understand those from Alabama and vice versa.

The DREAMers are legal residents so this bill wouldn't affect them.

This hombre's parents would complain about the price of a blanket if it was just $16. This way of thinking isn't exclusive to Mexicans.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

When I lived in Venezuela my wife and I went to a theater and watched Return of the Living Dead. We got looks from the rather small number of other patrons because we were laughing hysterically at the dubbed dialogue which was horribly translated. Just about the only thing they got right was, "Sesos!"

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

When first letter writer refers to "the struggles of people trying to make a life here, under adverse conditions, having fled other adverse conditions, and the systematic historical exceptionalism mythology, jingoism, xenophobia and racism " is she talking about the Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews, or Hispanics?
