Are there video cameras at the Biblioteca Hispana, or did she actually set foot in there? Also, I thought right-wingers wanted everyone in the world to speak English -- I mean, at the same time she doesn't want Spanish speakers to learn English, would she also vote to outlaw Spanish and force everyone to speak English? Non-English speakers have the right to remain silent, I guess (but no one will explain that in a language they understand).

They should have asked just the poets in the group, they would've got a big FUCK YOU, NSA! I'm gonna write whatever the fuck I want and if a poet is surveyed, intimidated, jailed, tortured, murdered with her tongue cut out and nailed to the church door, she'll just be joining so many other literary greats whose work was revolutionary, frightening, whose voice was silenced, and whose work lives on.
