In a nutshell: We love you. Take some drugs.

Bowing to pressure brought on by Pigdog Journal, the Minneapolis Metropolitan Airports Commission has finally caved. Passengers disembarking at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that they can now catch a cab no matter how much booze they're carrying.

Back in October Pigdog Journal reported on a civil rights crisis in Minneapolis. In a completely outrageous and unAmerican fashion, some Muslim taxi drivers at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport were refusing to give rides to passengers carrying (sealed) bottles of alcohol.

Rather than stand up for the rights of liquor-toting citizens, the Airports Commission struggled with the issue, trying to find some middle ground. Perhaps people carrying alcohol could take the bus instead (standing in the back of course)? Or maybe lights on top of taxis could signal "no booze allowed on this cab, guess you'll have to wait"?

However, once the glare of publicity brought by the Pigdog Journal focused this nation's attention on the crisis, the Airports Commission caved. Starting in May, taxi drivers can face a two-year revocation of their taxi permits if they refuse to give rides to travelers carrying alcohol.

This calls for a toast, to the Power of the Press!

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
