(Probable) Source: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's personal memos by himself: the (probably) Official Blog.
One item in this morning's email had the opposite effect however, and actually managed to be lightly entertaining. Check this out:
* Iran unveils plan for women's car *(Emphasis mine).
Iran announces plans for a car designed specially for women, with features aimed at appealing to females.

Nice choice of words, indeed, for a spineless article on Iranian women's plight—apparently, the harshest words the Beeb can muster are, quote,
the official Iranian concept of equality is very different from that understood by Western feminists.—made even funnier by the AFP photo they picked up to illustrate the thing: a veiled woman at the wheel.
Funny heh? Yet I won't be outdone or outspoken, and will henceforth suggest another Iran-related top story which I hope the BBC will include in tomorrow's daily email. Check this out:
* Hang out in Tehran: Iranian Tourism Ministry publishes the 2008 Best Gay Bars Guide *I am so in the mood for fun that I shall expect nothing less than your best (Islamic) women driving jokes in the comments, thank you very much.
