The protests in Iran have little to do with our regular beat here at PWPL. But I wanted to say something about Neda – the young woman who was allegedly shot to death on the street in Tehran and whose death was recorded and posted to YouTube and countless other video-sharing sites (you can see it here – warning: graphic and not suitable for children).
From what I can tell, she wasn’t a protester. She wasn’t doing anything especially brave; just going about her business. But she was killed anyway, perhaps just because she happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. She probably didn’t mean to become a symbol of bravery and defiance, but she has anyway. RIPby
