Greetings Laff Lovers,

I just read a story about a woman who was ticketed on a beach in Nice, France for wearing what they are calling a 'burkini' while swimming. A burkini is a full-body swimsuit which covers the head and is worn by more orthodox Muslim women if they want to enjoy swimming in public.

Now, France is a little on edge after certain recent events, and so they passed some laws about certain kinds of clothing in public.

I'm not 100 percent sure of my opinion yet on this kind of thing. I'm still thinking about it.

I can see not allowing a burka or a jib-jab to be worn in an ID photo, for example, that makes perfect sense, but to harass some poor woman because she has her knees, shoulders, stomach and hair covered while swimming? What the fuck is that about? I don't see how that makes anyone safer.

Apparently the wording of the laws which refer to beachwear that conspicuously demonstrate a person's religion is kind of vague and has created some confusion. I mean, if you can't wear swimwear that covers your knees, shoulders, stomach and head, I guess scuba divers and snorkelers are shit out of luck.

And what if a guy's racing Speedo is so tight I can tell whether he's circumcised or not? Does that count as demonstrating his religion?

Anyway, pictures of the event show several officers surrounding the woman on the beach and at one point the woman removes her tunic. So it LOOKS like they forced her to strip down to a sleeveless top.

I know France is pretty liberal about this kind of thing, but FORCING women to take clothes off at the beach seems a little much.

You know, the irony of the whole thing is that 100 years ago things were the exact opposite. There are stories of women who were arrested in the nineteen teens and twenties for showing off their legs at the beach. Now women are being forced to strip.

How times have changed.

Even though there was a blizzard raging outside, I made it the half-mile to the bakery, where I asked the owner for six rolls.

"Your wife must love these rolls," he said.

"How do you know these are for my wife?" I asked.

"Because I don't think your mother would send you out in weather like this."
