Wednesday News - February 28

Last day of February - woohoo!

They're calling in the big guns. News of the ejection of 11-year-old Asmahan (Azzy) Mansour from the soccer field last week over her choice of headwear has traveled around the globe (Okay, not quite). On Saturday, in Manchester, England, the "supreme authority of world soccer will tackle the question of hijabs on the playing field." I remember having to remove all jewelery before playing field sports, but I still have to wonder whether a hijab can really strangle someone. Also, it's not like women don't play sports in Muslim countries. Iran's Shihrin Nasri played in hijab and long pants in the West Asian Football Federation Women's Championship in 2005.

The NHL, of course, has not yet run up against the hijab problem. There was however a trading deadline yesterday. But I can't really offer any insight on that, so I encourage you to read on.

In a superb piece of investigative journalism, the National Post reports that the CBC allows smokers to puff away in a designated room within the building. Aren't you angry that they are just blowing smoke in the face of the law?

Fans of Minnie and Mickey, and Dopey, Sneezy and the five other dwarfs will be able to meet their favourite animated characters (the real 2D ones, not oversized, overstuffed impersonators) at the Musée des beaux arts as of March 8. This will be the exhibition's only North American stop. Who knew there were so many Disney fans in Montreal, of all places. Really? Just be careful of the apples, the museum's architecture does resemble Snow White's glass sarcophagus a little bit, and you wouldn't want to end up like her.

Just how flexible is this serpent, I wonder? How much of itself can it swallow?

Glad you took the lead on TDD, because there was no way that I could have explained its importance.
