Opening Arguments

With friends like these . . .

At the same time we're worrying about what enemies like North Korea and Iran are up to, maybe we could expend a little effort trying to get our allies to join the modern world:

A Saudi newspaper says the kingdom's religious police are now allowing women to ride motorbikes and bicycles but only in restricted, recreational areas.

 The Al-Yawm daily on Monday cited an unnamed official from the powerful religious police as saying women can ride bikes in parks and recreational areas but they have to be accompanied by a male relative and dressed in the full Islamic head-to-toe abaya.

Maybe next women could be permitted to chew gum, as long as they keep that veil on of course, so the manly men of Saudi Arabia don't have to see that hodrrid spit.
