It's happening.  The people of Iran are revolting. And they are dying.

There will most likely not be a Tiannamen-style massacre where hundreds are killed enmasse but instead protestors and innocent bystanders like the young woman above will die in ones and two and perhaps tens at a time.

Still, the news outlets are kept from reporting.  Ordinary Iranians risk their lives to film and upload atrocities. They tweet. They email.

The best news source I've seen to date is Andrew Sullivan's blog. I encourage those of you interested in knowing what is going on to check out his site and the other's he links to.

History is happening.  We are seeing it happen on YouTube and Facebook and Twitter.

The world will never be the same.
