I would like to tell you about my friend, Mina, and her weblog named IranWrites, which she keeps in English. Mina is one of the most intelligent, articulate, and compassionate people I have come across in cyberspace. She is a scholar, an author, and an activist. I came to know her when I was researching a piece I was writing about Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam, the Iranian choreographer and dancer, last year. Reading her observations and insight about that subject and any other subject she chooses, compared to my often superficial look at my subjects, embarrasses me a little actually! She zeroes in on her subjects and goes deep and wide to look at them, giving her readers immense satisfaction in seeing the issue from several angles. She writes simply and passionately, and reading her is very easy. Mina writes book reviews, political analyses, and her general observations as an Iranian who emigrated to US 35 years ago. Please go visit Mina's weblog and read her for yourself. In reading the collection of thoughts, analysis, and observations that make up her blogs, I am proud of her as a very responsible individual and an exemplary Iranian-American.
