Appreciating Differences

I thought you might be interested in this http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/ This is the BBC World Service web site. Check out "Have Your Say." There's a discussion going on in Britain about Muslim women wearing veils. I think the many, many comments are fascinating. We'll be talking about appreciating differences on October 25. Have you seen people on campus dressed in ways you've never seen before? How do you feel about it? Are there ways of dressing that make you uncomfortable? Do you think people should be discouraged from dressing that way?

Make a comment if you like. Otherwise, this might be something to think about before class on the 25th.
