Bag’s Take-Away:
Arab Spring meets Fashion Week?  I’ve been seeing this pic all over the news galleries and it’s rubbing me the wrong way. Call it the latest attempt by Western media to resist the uniform-ity of the burka.

Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis are pressing their demand for the country’s longtime ruler to step down. Wednesday’s crowds in the capital Sanaa and elsewhere are also denouncing a deadly munitions factory blast that killed at least 100 people in the country’s south.
