Yes, you're right, it did. Now I feel totally stupid .... on Sunday, I was talking to my friend, and she said that Ramadan starts "next week" -- and I just assumed that she meant the week of October 10 ... now I check and see that it did, indeed, start on Oct. 4.

I guess what I need is a more inclusive calendar, with a wider variety of holidays on it.
"We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake."
--President Barack Obama, 1/20/09
