Do you think Nancy Pelosi going to Syria and wearing a headscarf is a big deal?
I remember fondly going to a Red Oak, Iowa, Lutheran church one winter with Grandma Schenck. Yes, all of the elder women (named Esther, Ethel, Gladys, and so on) A) had snow-white, permed, approximately four-inch hair; and B) wore headscarves, or "hijabs," if you're translating it into Arabic. That's what many women do when going to worship.
I for one am glad someone is undercutting the Insane Foreign Policy of the Bush Administration.
