Folklife began last night, it's kind of fun going bar-hopping and only needing one cab, I had a lot of fun, met some new people, and listened to some nice music. Today ought to be a lot of fun, called up some friends and e-mailed some family to join me to hear Dave and the Dalmatians who are really good.
Never mind those previous comments i just submitted - my mistake. I thought the bit about Iran and Karnivore referred to the link above, when it was actually about the link below, which is from an Iranian news source.
You're right, it's interesting that the Iranians side with Russia on Kosovo. Not so surprising though from the Iranian side - the Bush regime has publicly said it wants to overthrow Iran's government, so naturally the latter will be swift to oppose anything the U.S. favors.
All the same it's ironic, coming at the same time when Belgrade tries to peddle the line that the Kosovar Albanians (whose politics are much more secular than Kostunica's) are about to create "an Islamist state in the heart of Europe," an alleged bridgehead for Iran and al-Qaeda.
That is total b.s., but the appeal is to emotions, not facts.
@ Owen, can we all say 'Barbary Pirates'?
