Short notices

Joel has an interesting post on France’s banning of the Muslim hajib in schools and other secular institutions. I don’t want to yank the thread and pull it here, but I think it’s really important to think about this issue. Take a look. I don’t know quite where to come down on this myself, although I sounded off in the comments, but maybe there’s a useful conversation starting there.

And Doug has a great pointer here to “what a crappy present” and other sites.

There’s still a conversation happening around the issue of banning religious clothing in the comments to Joel’s entry, which I point to above. I’m busily digging myself a hole — take a look, you might want to give me shove or throw a shovel at my head, or make mudpies, whatever…

I’m content to watch.
