Iranian of the day

May 23, 2004

This is how it happened. Thursday night (May 20), Shirin Ebadi gave a speech at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Palo Alto, south of San Francisco. Dinner was served and the invited guests came up one by one to shake her hand. My turn came, I shook her hand and said, "Salam, man Jahanshah Javid hastam az" She smiled and said, "Farhang maa raa hemaayat konid (support our culture.)" Then my wife asked us to turn around for a picture. That was it. And then the next fan jumped in to meet the Nobel laureate. (Do I look fat?)
