America is behind the world in the number of its citizens that are bilingual. President Obama should set a simple but profound goal for our nation: by the year 2035, 51 percent of our population should be bilingual.
At Vantage Properties, we're excited about our new "Be Counted" partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau and encourage our colleagues in the housing community to join us in helping ensure a successful census.
We're your friendly District Census Takers for the 2010 Census, and it's taken us exactly one full-recession year to give up our dreams of real, meaningful employment and join ranks with the thousands of Americans in need of a part-time government temp job.
The Census is a telling--and at times controversial--window into the issue of identity. How people within the American "melting pot" identify themselves is often an insightful narrative on the society's relationship with race, ethnicity, assimilation, and culture.
