Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The crackdown continues.

Iranian police have arrested 120 party-goers at three private gatherings in wealthy districts of the capital Tehran and charged them with mingling with the opposite sex and dancing, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
