This tells us so much about today's America - and indeed the West in general. In case you have difficulty in reading it, the sign on a Houston ‘ethnic restaurant’ says "We will be closed on Friday, September 11, 2009 to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Ali"

Well, look on the bright side: At least the Spanish version didn't come first.
