Citizens ratify Muslim prayer calls

Residents of Hamtramck, Mich., gave a resounding "Whatever," to Muslims' wanting to amplify their five-times-daily call to prayer.

The final count was 55 percent to 45 percent.

Not that it would have made any difference if they had voted the other way. The vote was about repealing an ordinance the city council passed in May that regulated the timing and volume of the broadcasts. The al-Islah mosque started broadcasting in May, and organizers said they had no intention of stopping.

Anyone want to start a pool on when the last non-Muslim will load a moving truck to leave the city?
