Quote of the Day

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran in his speech to the students of Columbia University in NYC"

“In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that in our country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon, I do not know who has told you that we have it.”

I enjoyed the laughter that these comments induced in the New York audience. It's actually extremely frightening and sad at the same time. I read yesterday that Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (also author of the powerful A Thousand Splendid Suns) is being made into a movie. Now, the parents of the Afghani boy actor who is raped by an older boy in the book and film, want the rape scene deleted out of fear.
