BEATS ME

What could bring hundreds of thousands (a million, even?) young people rallying into the streets of Tehran -- risking injury, disappearance or death?

I think it's down to two things:

A breath of fresh air. And the certain knowledge that if not us, now... then who, when?

Something very much like this happened thirty years ago. (Different players; different reasons; different wants; different times.) Remember the Shah? And the CIA?

Still, that was then and this is now. The question is this: Tonight, is the box half open or half closed? And does the box have breathing room... or just another lid?

Yours ever,

P. Boogaloo

Shhh... Don't mention the CIA. I mentioned it once... and I think I got away with it.

(The foregoing is a blatant ripoff from the Fawlty Towers episode 'The Germans'.)

Your meal will arrive shortly.
