At the last table we talked about how much Spanish is spoken everyday life in the U.S., especially in large cities. This article, though, looks at the other side of the coin, that is how little literary production in Spanish there is in the U.S.

Creo que este artículo es interesante porque contiene palabras que hemos discutido en los últimas dos reuniones—como "licenciado"/"graduated"­—y porque toca sobre un celebre personaje estadounidense, aunque, claro, también nos interesa mucho la cultura, historia y personas del mundo hispánico.

We know, of course, that translation is never an issue of word-by-word translation. If it were, learning a second language would not be hard nor would it be the wonderful journey into a whole other culture and way of looking at the world. An example of what happens when we ignore that—whether through oversight or because of expediency:
