Ebonics translators (?!?).¬† Can I just mention that Firefox just added a red squiggly line when I typed “Ebonics” with a lowercase “e”.

Right, so I digress.

…the agency [Drug Enforcement Administration] is serious about needing nine people to translate conversations picked up on wiretaps during investigations, Special Agent Michael Sanders said Tuesday.¬† A solicitation was sent to contractors as part of a request to companies to provide hundreds of translators in 114 languages.

Pretty incredible (and not in a good way) that Ebonics is being considered a language rather than slang.
