Free Hossein Derakhshan!
The "blogfather" of Iranian blogging in Farsi, Hossein Derakhshan, disappeared from sight a little while ago. Now we learn that he's in an Iranian jail, charged with spying for Israel. Remembering what the Iranian justice system is like, we must, regrettably, fear the worst.
Please send politely-worded correspondence to the Iranian Embassy. You might help to save a life. We can only hope.

NOTE: Emails to the addresses on the embassy website appear to bounce--at least, mine have. I'm waiting for word from the embassy about the current e-address. In the meantime, try this one: email@example.com.
UPDATE: (January 2) The embassy confirms that firstname.lastname@example.org is the e-address to use.
