Taxi, Anyone?

Maybe you read my posts (here and here) about the Twin Cities authorities at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport making rules that allow 300 Muslim taxi drivers to refuse to ferry passengers whom they suspect of carrying alcohol. Maybe you didn't read it. Please do.

For my part, I think it's an intriguing matter because Muslims will soon be squeezing the civil compact for all kinds of exemptions. In this morning's New York Sun--a very good newspaper, by the way--Daniel Pipes, an extremely knowledgeable and sharp-witted Middle Eastern scholar, explores to what the Minnesota "solution" might lead. It's not pretty, and it's not civil either.
