So I walk into the boys' bathroom in this suburban Minneapolis high school where I work, and I come across two Somali boys washing their hands. At first, I figured, "Good, kids washing their hands after peeing." Then, they started washing up to their elbows, like doctors getting ready for surgery, and after that they took off their shoes and washed their feet in the sink. After all, it is Ramadan. I thought that was pretty cool, but I am a liberal social studies guy.
