The Land of Tolerance

Via Think Progress: ...two Muslim men were removed from a plane departing from Tennessee and set to arrive in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both the men were dressed in traditional Muslim garb, which made the pilot uncomfortable and caused him to refuse to fly them to their destination...
..The irony is, both men, as a local news affiliate reported, were on their way to Charlotte to attend “a conference of imams, where they would be discussing ‘Islamophobia,’ the fear of Islam.

The pilot refused to fly these men. After they'd been screened. What is happening to this country?

It's Sunday, BC, so I thought I'd send warm Mother's Day wishes to Zoe's mom. Are you cooking today? :)

Happy Mother's Day!
