That scandalous, unbelievable story of a cab-driver being repeatedly stabbed on Monday night by a man who first asked if the driver was Muslim? Well, believe it. The alleged stabber has been charged with "attempted murder as a hate crime, assault, aggravated harassment and criminal possession of a weapon." Also, he worked for "an Internet media company who had recently spent time with a combat unit in Afghanistan filming military exercises." The incident took place on a ride between the dreaded Kip's Bay and the even more-dreaded Murray Hill, which are both, as we all know, just a "stone's throw" from Ground Zero.
