Okay, that was a horribly inconsiderate and rude way of spelling my title but I think its important to note that I meant to be horribly inconsiderate and rude.
I just read this article in Gazette.Net (a Maryland based online newspaper) on a Spanish speaking Guatemalan immigrant that was arrested for possession of cocaine and, "...was kept in jail for six months on a misdemeanor charge, due, in part, to the language barrier."
Is anyone else horrified by this? How the hell do things like this happen?! Now, I'm not really familiar with Maryland although I AM making crab cakes tonight! Anyone with me?! Hellooooo? They're delicious! Anyone?
I really am making crab cakes (using a traditional crab cakes recipe but I'm using the Chipotle recipe for the remoulade) tonight and I did work a criminal case 4 years ago in Baltimore, Maryland. I just can't tell you what county the Public Defender's office is that is mentioned in the not so well written article.
More later....I'm irritated and I need to figure out where I can buy 1lb of FRESH Lump Crab Meat after I get off work today.
