Quick Links for June 14, 2009

A green-clad Mousavi supporter saves a recruit from the security forces. Do Tehran cops ride around on rollerblades? Take their design cues from Kafka’s Metamorphosis?

TBE is currently all-Iran, all-the-time, with iced coffee on the side. In addition to the links posted yesterday, here are some more to satisfy your cravings.

IRAN:

Andrew Sullivan probably has the most comprehensive English-language coverage.

Tehran Bureau has continuous updates, a lot of it rumors, from within Iran.

The (Trita Parsi-led) National Iranian American Council started a blog to translate Farsi sources.

Laura Rozen, Brian Ulrich and Spencer Ackerman have also been posting regularly.

“Runnin'”- The Pharcyde

Note to readers: Coverage is operating largely on a closed circuit, with endless reblogging and retwittering of others’ material. But it’s super-exciting nonetheless.

ICED COFFEE:

TBE finally made cold-brewed iced coffee from this recipe. It is definitely worth it, particularly if using subpar beans, because the coffee does not become bitter as it tends to when hot-brewed. This recipe works perfectly with a smaller French press.

This post about iced coffee in Doha will be of interest to many of our readers. Someone should do a comparative study of experiences at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Costa in Doha and Cairo.
