Irony!

Reader comment on item: Institutions Push Back Against Head Coverings

Dear Dr Pipes,

In your blog about people hiding their identities by wearing Burqas and committing crimes, you report the story of bank robber Ranya Al-Huthaili. You reported that she is a woman of Saudi origin. In an ironic way, that is a great news. If a woman of Saudi origin can wear large sun glasses and be adventurous enough to rob banks, that is almost a step in the right direction.

I almost feel like congratulating Ms Ranya on her modern attitude but, I guess, banks and law-enforcement will not like it.
