Even a cursory reading of “Designer Slits” by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. is thorough enough to discover two revealing errors that demonstrate The American Spectator’s lack of journalistic integrity. Tyrrell claimed that Jack Straw barred the niqab from his offices. In fact, he did no such thing; rather, he suggested that being able to see the faces of his constituents may allow for better communication. While many in the British Muslims did take offense to this suggestion, it was by no means a ban, and Tyrrell’s misrepresentation is pointless, prevaricating, and easily fact-checked. Even more basic an error than that is his misspelling of “hijab” as “hajib.” Is there no filter whatsoever for a front-page article in The American Spectator?p>Cordially, br> — Mok Bang /p> p> Mr. Tyrrell is too late. The niqab is already here: I recently saw one on the New York City subway. The [presumed] female inside was wearing glasses and several large (vulgar) expensive-looking rings. br> — C.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
