County Councilman Jerry Walker wants to make English the official language of Anne Arundel County. That would make perfect sense if English weren't already, for all practical purposes, the county's official language. When was the last time you heard someone complain they couldn't read a county parking ticket or other official document because it was written in Urdu or Farsi? The fact that this never occurs ought to be a clue: This is not serious legislation but rather a piece of political theater that would achieve nothing more than puffing up the councilman's reputation among the anti-immigrant crowd.

An anxious woman was wandering near my house looking for her cat."It's a Somali cat," she said. "Very rare. Long ears."Never found the cat, but maybe I found something else: a new snobbery. Rare Somali cats.Somalia? I've been there, but don't recall ever seeing one of those fine cats. But those were difficult times, and maybe all the cats were eaten. That could be why they're so rare.Some people collect snobberies, make lists of them the way bird-watchers do with birds. Aldous Huxley, the late English writer, was one such.

Don't knock Prince Charles for championing "proper English" at the expense of the American corruption. That's his job.He's the Prince of Wales, not Brooklyn or South Georgia. They pay the guy to personify the United Kingdom and advance British interests. Linguistic imperialism is the last viable relic of empire in the modern world. He is right to run with it."We must act now to ensure that English -- and that to my way of thinking means English English -- maintains its position as the world language well into the next century," he told the British Council in London.
