Борьба с дискриминацией

Обыкновенно во имя ложно понятой борьбы с дискриминацией дискриминируют кого-то другого. В данном случае французским мусульманкам самим запретили являться в чадре на обязательные для иммигрантов курсы.

Bloomberg Top News -- ``The burqa signifies female submission that goes beyond its religious notion and can be seen as breaching republican values,'' the High Authority for the Fight Against Discrimination and for Equality, or Halde, said in a ruling published in the daily newspaper La Croix yesterday.
The ruling will result in the barring of the burqa or the niqab, another full-body veil, in French classes for immigrants. French language classes are mandatory for immigrants applying for work papers, residency permits and citizenship.

У Бара Луи одни проблемы

Другой (не тот, что у меня под окнами сдавал болельщикам) закрыла санэпидемстанция: The Health Department shut down another Bar Louie yesterday, this time at 741 W. Randolph (a press release from Tim Hadac at the CDPH says that it's still shut down as of post time). The major violation was the discovery of over 1,000 rat droppings in a basement storage area.

Хорошая работа: определять крысиные какашки и пересчитывать. Требуется зоологическое образование.
