* Kind of irrelevant
One might find some sort of truth in the story, but within a certain age group whose behavior is as such universally.
And why stick to the negatives, when we can emphasize a lot of positives. I know a lot of Iranian youth who bust their backs trying to make something of themselves with an honest day's work figuratively speaking.
I guess the verbiage reflects the writer's age and general attitude anyway, so it was not surprising.
If you don't heed my call and answer me
With joy, with the wine of your words, who will?
Shepherd of the world, refuge of the soul,
If you don't keep us from the wolf, who will?

The New York Review was born during the New York publishing strike of 1963, and has since become a bona fide bastion of smarts. The magazine's illustrious cadre of contributors reads like a who's who of literary heavyweights
At what point will checking news from Iran for us ex-patriates transcend its purely therapeutic value and become a way of involving one in the real life of a country we all hold dear? Surely this is the question that should be raised in any Iranian's mind when listening to Akbar Gangi's desperate shouts, punctuated by the cries of his wife.
