WAR! Here we go again! We hear the call to attack and destroy ISIS from all arenas: from Tom Patterson (“Time for US to get ‘crazy’ and fight to win in Middle East,” East Valley Tribune, Aug. 24), from Joe Klein (“An Evil That Must Be Stopped,” Time Magazine, Aug. 25), and from many politicians, government advisers and so-called military experts. And this after just having briefly commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, “The Great War,” the “War To End All Wars.” As we lackadaisically prepare ourselves to slay our newest foe, ISIS, it might be worthwhile to glance at an excerpt from Ernst Glaeser’s renowned best-seller from 1928, “Jahrgang 1902” (“Birth Year 1902”).

When did our so-called “Minorities” take over America? I don’t remember Italian-American, German-American, Norwegian-American, Swedish-American, Chinese- American, Indian-American, Pakistani-American, Japanese- American, Russian-American, Armenian-American first generation (off the boat, now off the plane) children being given years and years of “English as a Second Language” learning assistance. Many of these children had to learn a whole new alphabet. On top of that, to learn to read from right to left and from horizontally instead of vertically. Why did these “legal” immigrant children learn English in usually a year, if not less, and it takes our Spanish-speaking Children (same alphabet, same reading the words from right to left) years and years? And still, many read and speak English at a fifth-grade level when they graduate from the 12th grade?
