Philly Cheese Steak: lost in translation?

Perhaps Geno's has become overly confrontational on this, but surely there's nothing wrong with expecting those able to speak English to speak English and those unable to try?

That said, when I first got to Philly I'm not sure how easily my understanding of "English" went down with American speakers!

Yes, but why should the state be able to effectively nationalise a language?

They're not nationalising it though; they're allowing shop-keepers to decide that they want to privately choose only one. Pressure of the market. And people keep wanting to migrate to the US...
