Getting it Backwards in Tehran
The cheerless crowd that rules the Islamic Republic has created a new "morals police" to crackdown on lewd, un-Islamic behavior. The latest no-nos are: men wearing necklaces, women showing a bit of leg...and anyone with a dog or cat. Indeed, I am told that there are now respiratory problems in Tehran because of the cremation of so many pets.
Seems to me that the mullahs have it backwards. It's men showing too much leg and women wearing fetching jewelry that out to concern them, don't you think? And pets are a lot more likeable than the crowd around Khamenei and Ahmadinejad...
