LICENSING DEBATE: Lobbyists snuck in a law demanding bribes for court interpreter work permits for all languages. The federal government only certifies Spanish interpreters (and a minority creole dialect) and federal certification is voluntary. Texas should learn from the Feds. See the results and add your observations. Here is a sample of language quality offered by lobbyists for coercive licensing. The result has been to give a private corporate Houston translation agency a virtual monopoly on printing up required "education" certificates. (Aug/06 list showing them and an out-of-state association of coercive licensing advocates as the only "qualified" dispensers). Extra: Photos of collapsing subway works by government-licensed engineers in São Paulo.

For solid grounding in the application of moral and ethical values to questions of law, see  Viable Values or Moral Rights and Political Freedom by Austin's own UT Philosophy Professor Tara Smith. These are the clearest explanations yet of what rights are and why we need them. For thorough background on ethical questions generally see H.L. Mencken's 1936 "Treatise on Right and Wrong," available through online used book dealers.
