The eerie similarities in news reports from 1978 and this past weekend. In 1978 it was overthrowing the Shah. In 2009 it was reaction to a rigged election. In 1978 the overthrow was hijacked by extremists bent on employing their own forms of repression. In 2009 it's the repressive regime bent on suppressing the majority's desire for reform.

Where this story will end is anyone's guess at this point. But I suspect the ride, as it was in 1978, will be very bumpy.
