Pam Hettinger (12/28, Letters) is disappointed that President-elect Barack Obama appointed Hilda Solis as labor secretary, because she is Hispanic and said a few words in Spanish.
I think Ms. Solis is a very good choice for the job. I see nothing wrong with anyone saying something in Spanish. Someday we might have a Hispanic president.
Think about it, Ms. Hettinger. The Hispanics are here to stay. If that bothers you that much, maybe you need to find another place to live.
