"IRAN URGENT>CONFIRMED: Mir Hossein Mousavi has announced that he will be joining the masses in attendance at the Friday Prayers this Friday, July 17, 2009, being held at Tehran University in Tehran, Iran." FaceBook 07-15-09

Perhaps Mousavi has gained strength from Grand Ayatollah al Sistani and Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, neither of whom support Ahmadinejad according to what I've heard.
This will be an event to watch as it portends more violence in my opinion.

What's going on in Iran?

I realize the international media has been expelled from Tehran, but little has been reported since we heard that the Grand Ayatollah al Sistani, who lives in Iraq, has condemned the election as questionable. Anyone?

New to Blogging

Hello out there. I am finally ready to join the twenty first century with my new blog. I will be writing about the most interesting of subjects of course: my take on politics, current events, literature and movies. And, occasionally a rant about something or other that sticks in my craw.

Be assured that I've never been without an opinion about anything and I will therefore look forward to opposing views of which I expect many. My only requisite is that you be kind?

Thank you dear reader and I plan to meet with you again as soon as I get my photo uploaded and all my personal stuff added to my profile. Until then.
