Friends, I hope you won’t hold it against me if I say I need to take a couple of days away from the blog and recharge my batteries a little. I was already struggling yesterday, but I’m really feeling it today. I’ll be back for a little history on Sunday and hopefully back to normal on Monday. Next week look out for a feature on Iranian celebrity general/international pariah Qasem Soleimani, by special request. Thanks for reading!
P.S. If you’re in search of more reading on today’s Iranian elections, I recommend checking out a couple of pieces at Brookings’s Markaz blog. I’ll presumably have some thoughts on Monday once we have some idea how the election unfolded.
