A mixed group of Sunni and Shia held the Id Milad un-Nabi Parade in downtown Houston. Several hours of peacefull meeting and prayers at Market Square and then a parade for 12 city blocks. No trouble, everyone had a fine time according to the paper. After the procession the organizers distributed food to downtown homeless folks, saying that the Prophet never ate alone. Meanwhile, out west, past the Sari Shops on Harwin, at the police station on Bellaire, the sign outside is in chinese, because the police want to be welcoming to the neighborhood. . . Sorry about you Israelis and Palestinians. Life can be pretty sweet if you can just show a little respect and humanity towards each other.
