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