Miller Time or Mecca Time: Hartford City Council Weighs In

The Hartford City Council thought inviting a Muslim Imam to open their September 13th session with prayer would be a great way of commemorating 9/11, or, if not exactly commemorating it, at least showing their solidarity with the Muslim community. They backed down due to the uproar, but they really, really wanted to do it.

The Hartford City Council definitely thought it was Mecca Time.

The citizens said no.  (In Canada, this would probably result in a human rights complaint, but the Americans still have a bit of fight left in them.)

What time do you say it is?
