LA Times: "Hossein Derakhshan, the godfather of the Iranian blogosphere, returned to his native country last week to cover the presidential election after five years of self-imposed exile."

Lenslinger: "I see a lot of surveillance tape. Bank robberies, gas station heists, fast food break-ins…but...nothing illustrates the casual brutality of man like a recent piece of tape out of High Point." The video is not pretty, but the interview with Marion McKinney Jr is more heartening.

Lenslinger also says of the video, "If you live around here, you've seen it." I hadn't. But thanks to his blog, I have. TV execs, please pay attention: "Let there be downloads."
