I knew there and then that I would never again be the same Sarvenaz
The next day I woke up to the sound of the azaan from the little Gholhak
mosque around the corner and had to run to the bathroom to throw up. I looked in
the mirror of the bathroom and saw an old woman... no worse: I saw a wrinkled, tired,
not so old woman. I looked in the mirror again. The sound of the azaan and
my tired, oh so tired face, made tears roll down my face.

Iran-U.S. reality TV deal
By Niki Tehranchi
Iranian-born television producer David Nasser, who has had great success in America
with his two enormously popular reality TV shows, made a startling revelation in
an exclusive interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour last night. Nasser, has reportedly
struck a deal to transplant his brand of TV sensationalism to the Islamic Republic
You this month
On my way in to see you this morning, I came upon a crinkled napkin at the 34th Street
Starbucks. On it, a childish hand had invoked the words of one of the Greats: "It
is held that the first words in English were: 1) No! 2) Mother 3) Apple." The
simplicity of the formula boggles the mind and its accuracy is questionable as, no
doubt, the etymological roots linking mother, apple(-pie) and no! are implanted in
U.S. soil, not the English language, per se.

Nothing is sacred
By Sakineh Khamenei
My Name is Sakineh Khamenei. I am a graphic artist with a degree from
Tehran Azad University. These are my latest work for which I received First Pize
in a competition at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts. They are the result of
numerous debates I had with my father, the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. He
believes that there are limits to how people should think and express themselves.
I think he's full of crap.

52 photos of my travel through Iran
By Neema Moraveji
I sat and waited for the mysterious border patrol captain. I waited
for an hour. In that time a few people passed me and went on to Iran - traders, locals,
and workers passed me, looking at me curiously. Many Afghanis were going to Iran
in groups - apparently part of some sort of religious pilgrimage. After 90 minutes,
a guard came to me and told me the captain was ready for me and I should go to his
office and pointed to a door.
