Iran election

Miveh-ye Ajib

Green leaders being hanged; 99 reported executions so far

A while back my mom showed me a political cartoon of Ahmadinejad at a gallows, talking to a man with a green noose around his neck. In the word balloon, he was saying something along the lines of, "I hope you like the color I picked, I hear it's your favorite!"

I see all the protesting going on in Arab countries, and I have to wonder if word of any of that is reaching Iran, and what they think of it. I also feel really goddamn helpless.
