Like Rosemary Beam de Azcona, I'm also impressed that Judge Reagan's
office is returning calls about his ruling forbidding a father to
speak Spanish to his child.

As a local update, the Omaha World Herald has several followup
articles on the issue:

It sounds like Judge Reagan has been getting quite a lot of flak on
the ruling. Some community groups have requested to meet with the
judge, and others are taking the opportunity to do a little public
education on bilingualism. So maybe some good will come of this in
the end.
