Non-track: tune into Iran

Go here.

It's rare for me to go off the subject of track, but in this case the stakes are high and the reporting you are getting on TV is unbelievably incomplete. On this one, don't trust CNN, and, for God's sake, don't even think of trusting Fox News. We are seeing history happening in Iran. The question that hangs in the balance is whether the millions of protesters will be beaten down by a previously elected government that, just like Germany's Nazis, has subverted the democratic process in order to stay in power, and hasn't hesitated at turning itself into a fascist state. How this all turns out will affect the entire Middle East, as well as American foreign policy. Yes, these Islamic protesters need your prayers. Check out the Daily Dish for the most complete coverage I've found.
