Bedtime reading

1/1/06: After Iraq invaded Iran in 1980
... Iraq's aggression resulted in a surge of patriotism in Iran ... Instead of being welcomed as liberators by Khuzistani Arabs [in Iran] ... as the Iraqi forces had been made to believe, they found themselves facing spirited resistance.
The Longest War: The Iran-Iraq Military Conflict by Dilip Hiro.

1/2/06: Read album reviews in the 25th anniversary issue of The Big Takeover. It's good to know that Gang of Four is better than ever. I don't know how the editor manages to write all those incisive, snarkless pieces. Even though we've never met, I'm proud of him because our best friends in California are his sister and her family.
