    Did you just rename yourself after a horse race, Foti?

    Yeah, I actually know a good number of Hispanics who are infuriated by ones who do not speak English. They are generally educated, professional working people who have learned the language and expect others to do the same. And not leaving your "comfort" zone massively infuriates and inconveniences other people. So it is, in fact, quite inconsiderate.

    By "forcing the issue" I mean generally just not doing business with anyone who's not going to speak English to me. Money talks. As UTS said, the good jobs are going to other metros in this state for a reason. The kids I knew at UF who graduated, maybe 3 or 4 moved to Miami for jobs after school. Grossly outnumbered by those going to Tampa Bay, Orlando and Atlanta. That should tell us something.

    I think I can live with that in that I am comfortable living outside my comfort zone.

    For the record, I plan on learning Spanish beyond asking for a beer and the bathroom.
