This has already gone beyond alcohol.

Reader comment on item: More on Those Alcohol-shy Taxi Drivers

Submitted by Michael (United States), Nov 26, 2006 at 07:46

Last year there was a scandal in Minneapolis when a Muslim cabbie threw out two men out of his cab because they kissed, motivating this by his religion not allowing him to drive sinners. He picked them up in front of a well-known gay bar, the Saloon.

A month or so ago there was a story on the morning show of the KQRS radio station that had to do with Muslim cabbies not picking up blind passengers with seeing eye dogs.

I am left wondering what unclean thing will disqualify one from a cab ride next. Perhaps short skirts?
