Iran: The Defiant One (2#) -

Abdollah Ramazanzadeh tells his story to a reporter,
and some excerpts are translated for us by the LAT.

He refused to confess, but will he survive his refusal?

# Although in general I'm not a fan of newspaper
editorials, this one at the Boston Globe is outstanding:

"Ayatollah Khamenei’s chat last Sunday with students and professors at Tehran University revealed a respect for the power of ideas - and the desire to crush them."
