Making a Convention Mean Something

MTV is sponsoring something called a STAND UP AND HOLLA contest to pick a young person for a “primetime speaking role” at the Republican Convention. All the young people on the ballot seem worthy. But I’m voting for Reza Torkzadeh, because he will be addressing what I think is the most crucial international issue of our time – Iran. The more education in this area the American public gets the better, because, no matter who wins the coming election, the next President will have to deal with the Mullahs some way or other.
