Voice from the Commonwealth
Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

News agencies in totalitarian states are funny. IRNA, Iran's news agency, is reporting that 40 Hollywood celebrities have been 'blacklisted'. Their source? Celiberal. Obviously the people who made the site have absolutey no direct power to deny work to those 40 celebrities but to news-people in a place where having a personal website gets you thrown in jail, I guess it must seem very serious indeed for a website (which obviously must be government approved or would they not be in jail already?) to print such a list. And they say Americans don't understand the rest of the world and can't see nuance?
