One language, indivisible?

In his March 6 Op-ed column “Language unity makes US strong,” Jeff Jacoby argued for the importance of a single language, English, for our country. He wrote, “English has always been integral to the American identity. Without a common language, the miracle of E Pluribus Unum would never have been possible.”

He seems to have missed the point that “E Pluribus Unum” is Latin, not English.
