Daily News from Iran

This is an e-mail I receive daily by these fabulous people who work to let the outside world know what is going on inside Iran. They are working toward a democratic republic. Like we have, but that will serve their interests. I pray for their safety, as any journalist, such as Akbar Ganji, is likely to be imprisoned for saying anything outside of what is considerred "proper." May the day come when we all know the meaning of free speech. Amen.
