Meanwhile, in the land of real blood sports....

Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran is reporting yet another public hanging in that country. For those of you who think they are exaggerating to drum up support… well, I cannot verify the specifics of this case, but you might want to have a look at this… or to scan down at this link to “Execution in the Islamic Republic” for an interesting photo montage.

Sullivan has been dealing with the Iran question today, saying it should be at the top of the coming election. I agree. It’s a question of basic morals. So far Bush has been tough on the mullahs (though not consistently, in my estimation). Kerry has been virtually absent on the issue.
