Life in the Real America

I got one of those periodic notices from my insurance company about privacy policies, which are pretty much as expected. But -- there's a page listing interpreter services, for those who don't speak English. The languages included are, in order of appearance: English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Tagalog, Russian, French Creole, French, Polish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Navajo, Farsi, Arabic, and Japanese.

Just sayin'.

Footnote: The County Hospital has signs in English, Spanish, and Polish, and also offers interpreters in a number of other languages.
