Stories that Made Me Smile

Iran

It appears that some of the ruling clerics are standing up to those who have taken the position that the recent Iranian election results are legitimate. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that the families of those clerics who are taking a stand against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his supporters are being arrested in an effort to intimidate them into silence.

But, this, in my opinion, is still progress. I’m amazed at the courage of those putting their lives on the line to bring about change in their country.

Missouri

A neo-Nazi group in Missouri has decided to take part in the state’s Adopt-a-highway program.

The local chapter of the National Socialist Movement has signed up to help keep a portion of a highway clean of litter. In recognition of their volunteer efforts, this group has two signs posted thanking them for their efforts.

Now for the good part.

The Missouri governor is getting ready to sign a transportation bill that will, among other things, rename the portion of the highway that the neo-Nazis keep clean as the “Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Memorial Highway” in honor of a rabbi who narrowly escaped the Nazis in World War II and later marched with Martin Luther King Jr.

That’s gotta make you smile

Flynt

Apparently Larry Flynt was rushed to the hospital over the weekend with unknown health problems.

Flynt (in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last 30 years) is a high-profile producer and distributor of hard-core, highly derogatory porn.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Like the original Emily of Revolutionary War era, this Emily is delivering important messages crucial to winning the raging war of the time, but today, this is a culture war rather than a traditional one. And, like the original Emily, sometimes it takes a woman to do (or say) that which lesser men lack the courage and tenacity to do.
