San Francisco Taxi Blessing

The line of cabs stretched to the corner and two cops ushered them along, so as not to block traffic. The pastor did his part, too. When the line was particularly long, cabs got only three splashes of holy water, instead of the seven or eight dispensed at slack moments, for religion must operate in the real world.

Cabbie Larry Rosenbluth said he was banking on the blessing to turn the day around.

"Maybe now I'll get an airport ride," he said. "Haven't had one all morning."
