Miscellaneous meanderings and philosophical ramblings. The title from a spiral notebook I used to jot down my thoughts on religion and other matters some years ago. I like to write, think and express my views on various issues. Robust discussion is welcome.

Jailed Iranian blogger

From Instapundit:

THE COMMITTEE TO PROTECT BLOGGERS notes the case of jailed Iranian blogger Omid Sheikhan:

Omid Sheikhan, an Iranian student, spent three months in jail last year - including a month of solitary confinement and torture. All because he spoke too freely on his blog. Now, he faces a trial on uncertain charges. In the wake of recent convictions against Iranian bloggers on dubious merits, we aim to put enough pressure on the Iranian authorities that they drop the charges against Mr. Sheikhan before his trial begins on October 8.

Read the whole thing, and sign their petition if you'd like to help.

It doesn't take much to sign a petition or spread the word. Let's do what we can to continue applying pressure to that regime.
