This from Brett Zongker, Associated Press – via Comcast.net news:
WASHINGTON — NPR has fired longtime news analyst Juan Williams, also a commentator on the Fox News Channel, after he told Bill O’Reilly that he gets nervous on an airplane when he sees people in Muslim dress.
Thankfully, I have a job that won’t fire me for sharing the fact that I have experienced similar emotions. I’d like to think I’m not a bigot, but I must admit sharing a plane with Middle-Eastern folks post-9/11 has made me nervous on occasion — and they weren’t even wearing Muslim dress.
What is Muslim dress, anyway?
