I was in Miami on business a few years ago and thought I'd drive through "Little Havana" to see what it was like. I thought I'd accidentally crossed over into a bananna republic! Not one single thing was in English, not even the street signs.

That's insane, but largely the government's fault.

Several years back we were driving through a really old Czech section in Chicago (on Cermac Avenue). I noticed that the last of the Czech signs had been removed and they'd finally flipped over to English.

Took over a century!
