Reader comment on item: More on Those Alcohol-shy Taxi Drivers
in response to reader comment: Somali statistics and Snakes.

Ron complains: Jobs in Somalia pay a thousand times less that the american wellfare system pays. Why are they all taxi drivers? because they all are illiterate people with no qualifications at all. Riding on their Donkeys gives them the qualifications to ride a taxi. These people making more money in one day than they would make in one year in their old country.

...Ron - lighten up dude and get some coaching on your own educational deficiencies. Excuse me, I seem to have a beam in my eye -- Yes, Ron, I too find it easier to find the mote in yours while ignoring the virtual tree sticking out of mine. That said - what's the deal with Somali's?

How do you figure the ethnicity of these drivers anyway? ...As a frequent flier who's regularly clocked 1/2 million miles a year, I assure you I know the in and out of taxicabs in more countries than you can think of, much less spell. Were I so inclined, I could make a grievance list that rivals Leviticus in complexity and detail - you do get the Leviticus reference, don't you; oh, So Sorry.

Enuf.
Luke.
