I was gonna post today, but …

04 Nov

… but I am quite put off by the slowness of the 'Net, which seems to be in a veritable tangle today. I've even had trouble getting the BBC to stream, to say nothing of my local NPR (National Public Radio) station. The locals screw up pretty regularly, so it was no great surprise, but the Beeb? Wow!

And speaking of the Beeb … I'm getting all sorts of reports of demonstrations in Tehran … with the usual atrocities being committed by the government bully boys … is our Amir OK? Anyone heard? It is as amusing (and appalling) to see Persia as a state based upon anti-Americanism, with no positive philosophical base, as it was to realise that the US, in the Cold War days, was mainly motivated by anti-Communism. Mighty thin food for the soul, that sort of thing.

Back with a post soon, I hope.

    As of yesterday, I think he is ok. That's a bummer about the net. So far so good for me.
