Dutch forecast: 50/50 chance of heavy seething

Dutch Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk (I love typing that name almost as much as I like saying it) favors a burka ban in the Netherlands.

In a country where film producer Theo Van Gogh was murdered for making a film critical of Islam's treatment of women and an apostate Muslim MP was forced into hiding, you can bet that a ban, if passed, will make for some interesting news items.
