UN-Flags_8870.jpgWhile many pundits and politicians argue for an English-only mandate, the mayor has a different idea: “Mayor Michael Bloomberg is ordering all New York City services to be translated into six languages.

Those are Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean, Italian and French Creole.” |Newsday|
