Penguins Party in Pittsburgh


Tens of thousands of supporters of the Penguins are streaming to the center of Pittsburgh in a boisterous celebration of the Stanely Cup winners.

My bad.

Make that: "Tens of thousands of supporters of pro-reform leader Mir Hossein Mousavi are streaming through the center of Tehran in a boisterous protest against election results that declared President Mamoud Ahmadinejad the winner."

Too bad there was never a similar outpouring of support for the failed election process in Minnesota....

AP reported that the crowd stretched five miles. Someone at NIAC(http://niacblog.wordpress.com/) estimated that it was actually more like 9 miles.

Hundreds of thousands(possibly 1,000,000+) is more likely than tens of thousands. Many have called it the largest demonstration since the '79 revolution.
