    Good on Mr. Devencenzi for keeping the hearings on-topic.The MAA seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel in its search for plausible arguments. Even assuming he hasn't conflated Muslims with Sikhs, do truckers of any denomination really think, "ooh, a house of worship! So what if this load of garlic needs to be at the Port of Los Angeles in six hours--I'm going in!"

    Melayco added his concern that the mosque would draw considerable truck traffic, saying that Muslim representatives like the frontage road and that Muslim truck drivers would see the mosque from Highway 99 and drop in. There isn't room, either on the frontage road or the mosque parking lot, for trucks.Seligman replied that Melayco is confusing Muslims with Sikhs. Many Sikhs are truck drivers, but not Muslims, Seligman said.Every knows the drivers are Sikhs. But does matter. I wonder if Maylaco would be agaist a church being built there.
