This blog [Are you going to brag now?-ed. After what you said about John Kerry? Okay, okay]… This blog, which has made some minor, completely unnoticed and insubstantial contributions [Now you’re talking.-ed.] to the Free Iran movement, was suprised to see that that same movement has some friends in surprising places. (via the always interesting and modest Imshin).

UPDATE: Be sure to scroll down on Imshin to the “Affaire du lycee Montaigne.” This is an fascinating case I was going to fictionalize for a novel (I even visited the school last December), but decided against because my knowledge of French culture, despite many trips, didn’t feel sufficient when I began writing. [Hey, you’ll write about anything on this blog.-ed. For three pargraphs.]
