Free Mojtaba and Arash Day

I spent the evening at the hospital checking up on Dad (he’s doing well

Today — all remaining 30 seconds of it — is Free Mojtaba and Arash Day.

Mojtaba Saminejad and Arash Sigarchi are imprisoned in Iran for

blogging — although the charges levelled against them are espionage

and “insulting the country’s leaders”. More details are available at Reuters, the BBC, Iz Reloaded and at the Committee to Protect Bloggers (good cause, so-so name).
