Thoughts: The country should take notice of this small town

A small town in Maryland has made English the official language of the town.
English is now the official language of this central Maryland town of 5,000, after the Taneytown City Council approved a nonbinding resolution, deciding against a charter that had drawn complaints from civil rights groups and residents.

"This issue is not, I repeat not, about giving up your native tongue," said Councilman Paul Chamberlain, Jr., the resolution's sponsor, after Tuesday's vote. "All we're asking is if you become a U.S. citizen, please speak English. There are two reasons: one, you can have greater opportunities to realize the American Dream, and two, so that we can communicate."
The official and only language of the United States should be English.
