What is a "minaret?"  Is it like a croquette?  I admit, I had to look it up.  Minarets are those tall, slender towers that rise above mosques.  You might say it's a mosque's version of a church steeple.  Well, everytime that Felix Widmer, a long-time verteran of TWR, visits Istanbul and sees all of the minarets rising above the city of Istanbul, Turkey, he is called to pray to the One True God.  So, I must asky myself--when I pass a house of worship of another religion, do I pray for the people there?
