US opposes Oklahoma headscarf ban

As I've said before, I'm not certain of the need for a complete ban on religious ornaments in public schools. But in the case of attire, especially headgear, it behooves us to remember that most gangs identify their members by clothing and/or headgear. So I dunno - it's a tough one.

The justice department files a complaint on behalf of a Muslim girl sent home from school for wearing a scarf.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
