Not fundamentally important, but interesting: apparently, the t-shirt vendor who first noticed the smoking car in Times Square last weekend is a Muslim.

The source of that datum claims to have learned it here, where I don't see it now, but it does say he's an immigrant from Senegal, which Wikipedia says is 95% Muslim; I would guess non-Muslims would be more inclined to emigrate to the US. Since it doesn't really matter, though, I consider this good enough.
