Delightfully Tacky Yet Unrefined


A Saudi Arabian judge has sentenced restaurant owner Nabeel Al-Ramadan to 90 lashes. His crime? Hiring two women to take telephone orders at his restaurant. The girls worked beneath veils. But local authorities still considered their presence to be a violation of decorum. Al-Ramadan fired the two after complaints. But that didn't end his legal troubles. He's appealing his sentence.
