the booze light is fine with me

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

Submitted by Alan Shweky (United States), Oct 11, 2006 at 16:48

Professor, I just love the idea about the two light solution to the Moslems who refuse to take passengers carrying alcohol. Now I will be able to calmly, legally, and discriminatingly select a non-Islamic cab driver just by checking out his extra light. Whether I'm carrying alcohol or not. My discerning selection will not be based on some kind of arbitrary Islamic bigotry.This symbolic light will be my luminous signal for Islamic intolerance.

Do you realize how many Americans will avoid the "special light" cabs when they are made fully aware of the new choices they have in cab selection? I think many Americans will think twice and cast a vote for tolerance. Wonderful solution, your reservations notwithstanding.
