* Islamic school ad unjustified

J.N. writes: I was rather disappointed to see the segregated Islamic school of New York advertised in your paper. How can one justify that, having seen so many people of one's country displaced by such an ideology which tends to be -- in its public and political form -- very destructive .

Those poets and writers whose words you use in your journal such as Kasraei and Parsipour deserve better and more support than the said school and its supporters . The existence of one has today led to the destruction of the other .

* A forgotten human right

A.T. writes: For some reason, your photos from hybrid Iranians [at Iranian-American street festivals in Washington and New York] reminded me of my great sorrow when I will finally have to leave the U.S. for Iran: I WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO WEAR SHORTS IN PUBLIC.

What a pity! Don't you think so?

* In honor of Sharekord

Mehrdad writes: I notice that you put a name of an Iranian city as a part of the WEB address for the Times. Have you ever put "Shahrekord" there?

Shahrekord is the capital of Chahar Mahal Bakhtiari. I am originally a Bakhtiari and might send you some pictures from there soon. Thanks

REPLY: Your wish is my command! This week's Iranian city for the Times URL will be Shahrekord. jj

* Magnificent article

Amir writes: I'd like to congratulate Ms Khalili for her magnificent article analyzing the elements of racism, xenophoebia, and ethnocentrism in Iranian culture ["Forgiving Salm and Tur"]. Keep them coming, Laleh!

* Tell us more
