You all know I've been rooting for Iran to turn democratic all along. I still hope they have a revolution (preferably bloodless but you take what you can get.) However... This is really bad news. A bunch of equations just changed.

Or then there's the totally opposite interpretation of events. If I'm right they'll be blushing. If they're right, well probably 20 people read this, and I hedged my guess.

I've recently been enjoying the show 'Changing Rooms' on the BBC. It's like 'Trading Spaces' only better. The design ideas tend to be much more innovative. The rooms tend to be in older houses and thus have things like old plastered-over old fireplaces that get made over. But sometimes the best part is the really awful designs. One of the commercials invites you to watch "brutal senseless acts of redecorating." I love it.
Another fun show is 'So Graham Norton' it's sort of like Letterman or Leno but much more creative, risqué, and funny.

"Peace means something different from 'not fighting'. Those aren't peace advocates, they're 'stop fighting' advocates. Peace is an active and complex thing and sometimes fighting is part of what it takes to get it."
