http://www.heritage.org/research/commentary/2005/08/fashioning-a-response-to-immodest-clothing Off-Topic: Dear Ms. Hagelin: I thought, yesterday, of this old column of yours. I suppose parents who want their daughters to dress modestly are still having touble finding suitable clothing. I'm a grown woman and I sometimes have that problem when I'm shopping for myself. Some pointers: Short sleeves: If you keep your eyes open, you can find jackets or cardigans, made of thin Summer fabric, that can be worn over a short sleeved blouse. Low necklines: A pretty scarf can be pinned into the neckline. Mini-skirts: If parents have trouble finding long skirts for their daughters, they should consider buying the miniskirt. Check at a few fabric stores. pretty remnants are often for sale very cheaply; if you can't find a nice remnant, buy a yard of fabric at the regular price. Take the miniskirt and the fabric to a dressmaker or tailor and have her or him sew on a flounce or a ruffle, if the parents don't know how to do it themselves. I wouldn't be surprised if there are religious Christian or Jewish tailors and dressmakers who deeply oppose the sexualization of children's clothing and would be happy to provide discounts for parents who wanted their daughter's skirts lengthened. Parents who know how to read patterns and run a sewing machine should consider making their children's clothes. One of the most memorably. noticably well-dressed women I ever knew pretty obviously made her own clothes. Keep up the good work.
1400 sexual molestations of children in Rotherdam, UK, Dear Mr. Giles: It's RotherHAM.
The woman possesses yet another vile trait -- one of the ugliest in the human pantheon: ingratitude. Dear Mr. Prager: Do you know what W. Somerset Maugham said about ingratitude? It's in his short story "The Back of Beyond," in W. Somerst Maugham, Collected Short Stories, Volume 4, Hammondsworth : Penguin, 1952, pages 56-85, page 83:" Oh, my dear boy, one mustn't expect gratutude. It's a thing that no one has a right to. After all, you do good because it gives you pleasure. It's the purest form of happiness there is. To expect thanks for it is really asking too much. If you get it, well, it's like a bonus on shares on which you've already received a dividend; it's good, but you mustn't look upon it as your due." We should treat people decently whether we have a debt of gratitutde to them or not. To behave decently towards someone BECAUSE THEY WERE KIND to you makes gratitude the flip side of revenge.

Jon Stewart and Anti-Semitism

He ridiculed the idea that Israel has warned Gazans to evacuate before air strikes. "And then, at that point, what are Gazans supposed to do? Evacuate to where? Have you seen f---ing Gaza? Israel has blocked this border. Egypt has blocked this border. What are they supposed to do? Swim for it? Gaza has 200 square miles. That's room to get out of the way of a rocket-or into a bomb shelter. Don't bristle when a liberal calls you an anti-Semite, Mr. Bozell. Liberals substitute insults for answers.
What a headline. What's next? "Fat Government Workers Spend their Days Eating Candy?" Porn is the most boring stuff on the planet!!!!!
Dear Mr. Jacoby: Irving Berlin's parents entered the U.S. legally. I am sure that, like most Jewish immigrants, they worked their fingers to the bone. They did not go on welfare. I would welcome any Mexican immigrant who came here legally and worked.

Many years ago, on my first trip around the world, I was struck by how the children in the Middle East -- Arab and Israeli alike -- were among the nicest looking little children I had seen anywhere. Dear Dr. Sowell: A great many Israelis are Arabs.
Dear Thinker7: Tacky and uncalled for.
My parents, may they both rest in peace, were liberals.
Dear Mr. Giles: It’s traceable and it would be a peace of cake to rattle the cages of the various and the most vociferous Facebookers screaming for Jones’ head. Do you mean "a piece of cake?"
