Sullivan's Person of the Year (II)

You wouldn't know it by watching CNN, but Iran erupted into protests as the mourning period for moderate Ayatollah Montazeri coincided with an important holiday in Shi'ite Islam. As always, The Dish is the place to be for updates on the protests. Of particular importance is the apparent assassination of Reformist leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi's nephew, Ali Mousavi. Sullivan and his readers have plenty on the importance of this.

In related news, The Times of London picked Neda Agha-Soltan as their person of the year. Makes for a better story than Bernanke, for sure.

And I've said it before, but it is incredible to witness history unfolding in real-time in Iran. This is what a revolution looks like in the 21st century.
