Limited pat-down at airport, all-out prostration in bookstore

I flew out of Dulles today, and got in the “patdown” line. I was quite disappointed at the perfunctory nature of the patdown! They did only the upper body, nothing below the waist. Perhaps they were surfeited with junk-touching from the holidays.

When I got to LA, I went to Borders in Manhattan Beach, a very non-diverse area where I have never before noticed any Muslims. In the back of the store, a mother and daughter were in the corner with their shoes off, prostrating themselves to Allah. How long before Borders provides special facilities so that their Muslim patrons can ritually cleanse themselves before prayer?
