Latin classes

The other day one of Tulkinghorn’s minions was talking to a proud US chief executive officer about his business’s record for diversity. Certainly, there was a high proportion of the local Latino population featured in the business.

However, the hack was forced to bite his tongue when the company boss mentioned the linguistic connections to Spain. “You know,” he added helpfully, “the one in Europe.” Aha, of course. Gee, thanks.
