Investigators with the New York City Police Department say it all began Monday night when a 21-year-old man hailed a cab at 24th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan.
Police say the passenger asked the driver, "Are you Muslim?" When the driver said yes the passenger pulled a knife and slashed him in the throat, arm and lip.
Thanks to Jonah Goldberg and Ross Douthat, of course, we know that the driver was the real bigot and -- bonus! -- he is now in a position to better assimilate to American values. [via our comments]
