IS OUR IMMIGRANT CHILDREN LEARNING?
When the president was asked at a Rose Garden question-and-answer session whether the anthem should be sung in Spanish, he replied: “I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English, and I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English.”
He made his remarks on the matters during a wide-ranging briefing with reporters.
“I think people who want to be citizens of this country ought to learn English,” Bush said.
The judge in the sentencing trial of al Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui reminded jurors Friday to avoid looking up words in the dictionary after learning a juror went on the Internet to find out what “aggravating” means.
“The word ‘aggravating’ essentially means to make something worse,” the judge told the jurors. “Do not hesitate to ask questions if you have any. If you have a question, we are here to help.”
“I had heard that the Golden Gate Bridge was the easiest way to die. I heard that you hit the water and you’re dead,” Hines said. “And I remember picking the spot. This is the good spot. I’m not too close to the pillar. I won’t hit the pillar. I’m not too close to the land. I won’t hit the land. I’ll hit the water and I’ll die.”
Hines stood on the bridge for 40 minutes. No one approached him to ask what was wrong. When a tourist came up and asked whether he could take her photo, Hines said that was the final straw â€” clear proof that no one cared.
“Can you take our picture”? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA
British music producer Adam Kidron says he just wanted to honor the millions of immigrants seeking a better life in the U.S. when he came up with the idea of a Spanish-language version of the national anthem.

AND TODAY’S INIGO AWARD GOES TO…
“As a professional journalist, Tony Snow understands the importance of the relationship between government and those whose job it is to cover the government,” Bush said.
Snow thanked Bush and said he took the position because he believes in the president and wants to work with the White House press corps.
“These are times that are going to be very challenging,” Snow said. “We’ve got a lot of big issues ahead, and we’ve got a lot of important things that all of us are going to be covering together, and I’m very excited and I can’t wait.”
Neither Bush nor Snow took questions from reporters during the brief announcement.
