I'm Back

I apologize for the long lapse in postings. I had a bad swimming/cliff jumping accident about two weeks ago during which I fractured my spine in three places. Though I am somewhat limited, I'm home and doing well recovering. I feel very blessed that I will have a full recovery and will not need surgery.

Now, back to Iran. Link TV has produced a documentary of the June 10 "Time to Talk to Iran" even on Capitol Hill, providing an opportunity for American citizens and U.S. Congressional representatives to use a row of 60’s-era red “hotline” telephones to talk directly to ordinary Iranians in Tehran, including a 60-year-old petroleum engineer, a software designer, a French literature professor and a high school student.

The Link TV footage is unique in that they had a crew in Tehran to film the other side of some of the conversations. The 60-year-old petroleum engineer agreed to allow Link TV to film him while he was speaking on the phone with Americans. Click here to watch the documentary.

Glad your back. I love your site. Thanks for taking the time to share your work and inform the public about Congress's stance on the Iran issue.

One question that is beating my mind after reading the latest news from Iran/world relations on how the Geneva group has basically given Iran an ultimatum, either quit enriching or suffer the consequences. Why can't we just let Iran keep their rights to build peaceful nuclear energy. Do you have any thoughts or posts that could help me answer that question?
