Weblog Action cause of the week: support Iranian students

Weblog Action Center Cause of the Week:

My streak of picking the winners continues as The Emperor's Support the Brave Students of Iran becomes the cause of the week.

A deserving cause, if ever I saw one:

Armed with nothing but banners and a deeply rooted belief in Liberty and Freedom of Speech, these young folks are standing up, unafraid and undeterred, to the Mad Mullahs of Tehran, demanding that Iran move into the 21st century with the rest of the world.

These are TRUE Freedom Fighters and I'm in awe of their courage!
