And there you go. The judge ruled that she had to take the veil off for the picture.
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.  - RAH

^ I think the judge made the right call, but there is one thing from this article that I don't agree with...

Quote

"Nothing is more important than making sure that our people are safe, and (Thorpe's) good logic in making sure Floridians continue to be able to be safe is very, very important," Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist said Friday.
Nothing is more important than safety?  I beg to differ.

Here's a question...

Say this woman is pulled over for some minor infraction...

Officer asks for license/registration/proof of insurance...

Officer compares unveiled woman on license to... A veiled face.

Would the officer be able to ask her to remove her veil, or is this another lawsuit waiting to happen?

Way to open the proverbial can of worms!


I think the answer is yes she'd have to take it off.
