Yes, but if she had been wearing a flag pin...
NPR reports that Dunkin' Donuts has pulled an Internet ad featuring cooking guru Rachel Ray because the chef is wearing a houndstooth scarf that apparently too closely resembles a middle-eastern accessory used to keep sand out of the mouth and eyes.
Wearing this scarf allegedly symbolizes in some oblique way Ms. Ray's and Dunkin' Donuts sympathy with terrorists or terrorism.
I have not yet been able to verify that a magistrate in the court of public opinion has ruled that Dunkin' Donuts must atone for its sin by loading a thousand jelly-filled with poison and dropping them over the mountains of Afghanistan.
Funny group, terrorists. You just never know the things they will take comfort from.
