Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dir Santa Klaus,

I no you ar very bisy. I want to get a geft for crismas. I af bin a good boy. Can I get a hedscaf?

ps: Migeru you got a laugh out of me with your comment. This headscarf thing is not going to leave me any time  soon I guess. So I might as well take as many people down with me! So Migeru, come on, admit it ... those 1950s stars with heascarves, or say the one in Thelma in Louise ... don't they look great?

I should stop with the headscarf jokes, really.

But there is a serious point here... Muslims view headscarves a modest dress. With that in mind, I wonder whether a flirtatious remark to a young muslim woman about the colour of her headscarf could be construed as sexual harassment. On the other hand, a large fraction of the heaadscarves one sees around are very colourful, and sometimes patterned - surely a small measure of rebellion against the imposition of "modest" head dress.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
