An Update for you on MILAD FOR CONGRESS - Milad is a Progressive Iranian-American running as a Democrat in the MD-6th Primary April 3rd. I met him at a recent fundraiser and was immensely impressed. As a Doctor, he is the only non-lawyer running in this race. Here's a chance for the Iranian-American community to have a different "face" associated with the term "IRAN" or "Iranian-American." Milad is also an ex-US Airforce guy - all at the ripe age of 35! Thank you! Afsaneh Mirfendereski, Chevy Chase, MD - USA.

If Jahanshah allows it - I will continue to bore you with this post every 3-4 days, until the April 3 Election.

As for "Hafez" - the site was too political for my sensibilities. The non-political stuff is mostly entertaining or trivia  -- and Hafez is serious culture and wasn't fitting into the mould well for my taste or energies.

So, I'll stick to MILAD on this site - Hafez is being enjoyed elsewhere for now. Never say never, though. Thanks!
