Iran protests continue. Supreme Leader approves investigation of election results

There really is no better source for what’s happening in Iran than the Huffington Post. Nico Pitney’s coverage surpasses anything I’ve been able to find. (I’ll admit to becoming a little obsessed with Nico’s reporting on Iran.)

The latest news is that there is a huge pro-Mousavi protest underway in Tehran (with no signs of violence, so far) and the Supreme Leader, the omnipotent one, is allowing an investigation of the election.

Events are unfolding quickly. Twitter has been an amazing source of info. too. (#iranelection) Great efforts are being made to keep the flow of info. coming from Iran. This is a new media revolution.

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
