I see the top stories in the news and I simply sigh ...


From CNN:

American Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, on trial in Iran for espionage, has been sentenced to death, Iran's Fars news agency reports. FULL STORY
 From CNN US:
 From Fox:

First, there are LOTS of crime stories there.

Second, there are some seriously trivial or relatively unimportant stories there (remember, these are their top stories).

These two findings should not be surprising given the evidence discussed in the book.

Third, there are several important international stories being discussed. Given the relative lack of focus on these issues (as shown in the book), at least this is refreshing!
