This story is just so similar to stories that I've reported/posted here before, I wasn't going to post about it. So this is just to keep everyone updated on how much/little we understand about head coverings in the US. Still.

Not that some places in Europe understand too much differently, I just haven't had the time to sort through news articles lately. Please forgive. Sometimes you can keep up to date on these things with the Google news feed in my right column.

Also note this editorial comment, in the Religion section of the same Wash. Post: "Note to Credit Union: A Hijab is Not a Hat".
