Mesmerized by Iran

I am mesmerized by what's going on in Iran - it has the feeling of history in the making. I'm trying not to be carried away by optimism - we don't actually know what the real vote count was, or even if the increasingly evident fraud will be addressed - but it is easy to be inspired by the (thousands? millions?) of people who are courageously protesting for their political rights and sticking to non-violence, despite the lack of guarantees.

Andrew Sullivan has impressively comprehensive coverage. LaraABCNews is a personal acquaintance who's twittering from Tehran - very exciting. The mainstream media didn't get off to a great start.
