What America are we living in?

Coke scored big marketing points in that the big topic of conversation today is Coke's "American the Beautiful" spot on the Superbowl.  Possibly even bigger points on stimulating a national discussion. Seriously though, I can't even believe we're having this conversation.  What year is it again?

Let me clarify something for the folks who might have missed it, Coca-Cola is a private company.  We're not talking about a government entity doing business in dozens of languages.  For the record, I think the United States government should conduct business in English.  No, we're talking about a message a private company wanted to send about this huge, amazing country we live in.   A country of 313,900,000ish unique individuals.  313,900,000ish different stories to tell.  News flash, not all those stories happen in English. *gasp* people.  America is beautiful, but not because of a language, it's beautiful because of it's people.  Our people.  And if you can't see that these people are beautiful, with beautiful stories to share, legacies to leave, and each a unique part of a beautiful American experience then I'm sorry for you.  Because it's an amazing country you are missing.

The only thing I didn't like is that they didn't include any ASL.
