I'm on Hold

…with Comcast, the cable provider in my area. Here’s the first part of their automated answering system:

“Thank you for calling Comcast. If you would like to continue in English, press 1. Para continuar en Espanol, marque dos.”

Mary Katharine blogs at Townhall and doesn’t think she should have to press any buttons for English.
