Can humanity settle for some happy medium: From Burqa in Afghanistan to G strings in sports and at beaches?

Suggested Reading by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times:

A review of the following collection should help any thinking person realize that humanity needs a happy medium.

If my articles are boring to you, it may be that you need to read more of them, as was suggested by John Cage, one of the most influential American composers of the 20th century, “If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all.”

For my Christian readers, may I politely suggest, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:3-5)
