How do we help the Iranians in their fight for democracy?

Unfortunately, we don't. Here's why.

Iran has been ruled by religious zealots for a long time. Since the 70s it has seemed that the Iranian people have been comfortable, at least relatively so, under the leadership of the Ayatollah and a figurehead President.

Today not only are they uncomfortable with the President, but they actually are revolting in the face of divinity. It's the beginning of a new era in Iran. The Iranian supreme leader came out in support of the election results, and this was not enough to dissuade protesters. This is an extremely important point because the Ayatollah's words had gone relatively unquestioned in the past. Previously his words would have been considered other word of God, therefore unquestionable.

Max to the Vet

Last night we had to take Max, our chocolate laborador retriever, to the vet. The poor guy has been getting a rash on his groin that clearly itches. The vet gave him some medicine, and the worst possible prognosis. He may be allergic to PEOPLE FOOD!

The vet told us to remove all table scraps and cat food from his diet for 2 months then gradually reintroduce things one at a time. This is going to be torture for Max who lets his dogfood bowl sit full all day long. He only eats dog food when he is faced with starvation. (Granted, starvation sets in several times daily for labs.)

Poor Max, my 79 pound puppy, will have to suffer with kibbles and bits.
