Phew!

Got a long email from my cousin in Sanandaj! Family seems to be OK, but obviously very disappointed about how the election turned out. It's been a long-held suspicion that their votes don't matter. Even so, people got their butts out to vote this time, in record numbers... and now they know they don't matter.

Riots seem to be calming now, most of the leaders have been arrested. Still lots of chanting and marching in the streets, though. Land-line phones and electricity seem to be back up in Tehran, but cell phones are still down.

Mousavi has called for a rally tomorrow in Tehran.

No idea what will happen from here.
