Gates of Vienna News Feed 3/23/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 3/23/2010Conservative pundit Ann Coulter was scheduled to speak tonight at the University of Ottawa under the sponsorship of IFPS-Can. Her topic was to be the suppression of free speech in Canada. Unfortunately, Ms. Coulter was unable to speak, because a group of potentially violent protestors outside the venue caused campus security officials to decide that they could not ensure her safety. Ms. Coulter says she will wear a burka on her next visit, because that will guarantee her safety in Canada.

In other news, the predicted EU rescue deal for Greece has not yet gone through. Chancellor Merkel of Germany seems to have pulled back from the brink of allowing the German taxpayer to bail out the Greeks. Meanwhile, the value of the euro relative to the dollar has declined even further.

Could the links to the specific articles referenced in the daily news feed be added to the article itself? Because I can't find them in the midst of the flood of all the articles.

Specifically, I was looking for the Coulter article where she mentions the burka. No luck finding it amidst the dozens of other article links.
