Saudi ban on Sarkozy girlfriend

I missed this last week, but:

A senior Saudi official urged French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Monday to respect Saudi Arabia's conservative Islamic culture by visiting the country without his girlfriend, former supermodel Carla Bruni.
This is a welcome precedent. The next time there's a Saudi state visit to a Western country, the visitors should be told to respect Western culture by bringing no polygamously married women or men, and by bringing nobody who treats half the human race as second class citizens.
