The revolution continues



It's hard to realize from the mainstream media that there is a revolution on the streets of Iran. This is the bloggers' revolution, and the twitterers'. One thing about modern technologies, is that it's a lot harder to hide and repress dissension. Not when all you need is a cell phone and 140 characters. Wish them luck.

Off their motorbikes and disarmed, those thugs are not so tough, eh?!?!

I hear that the Supreme Leader has backtracked on his God made a miracle and has called for an investigation.

I wish that people in the USA would have engaged in massive, non-violent protests after the electoral irregularities in 2000 in Florida and 2004 in Ohio. These folks in Iran are very courageous. I don't wish them luck. I wish them Godspeed and total success. After eight years of George Bush I can certainly empathize with their dislike of their own president.
