To read or to write, that is the question! Ahmadinejad explains why he hasn’t been updating his blog. He ‎stated he would update it more often.‎

Oh, come clean, Mahmoud. You've been wasting all your web time here.

Great now I've wasted 30 minutes looking at pictures of kittens.

Also some of my trusted students have shortened the long messages for me ‎and have prepared a statistical report regarding all of the messages which I have read ‎and studied those too.

a)Shortening the messages

Mr President,

I do not agree with the demonisation of Iran but strongly disagree with your antisemitism, failure to acknowledge human rights like freedom of speech, right to sexual orientation (though it's great you fund sex change ops) and mistreatment of women. Not too crazy about the authoritarian entanglement of Church and State and a big-ass Amnesty International file on your practices.

Joe Smith

b) Preparing statistic report:

Western Yes[x] No[ ]
Likes Mahmoud? Yes[x] No[ ]

The first time one of our practice teaching students said this it kind of blew my mind. Imagine an ESL lesson, a bunch of Afghan teens. The students have spent the last few minutes interviewing their partners about daily habits.

"Ok, Haroon, could you tell us what you learned about Meena?"

Haroon stands. "In the name of Allah, I asked Mina what time she go to school, and Mina go to school at seven o'clock and come home at one thirty."

And then the touchy issue comes up, should I try to discourage this, or just leave it be? In English, even for Muslims who speak English, we just don't talk like this. But in the end I just decided to leave it alone.

I just get weirded out when people write Mohammed (pbuh). The first time I encountered it on USENET I thought it was a variation of Important Innocuous Person (spit).

Anyway, I don't know why Fred Armisen is keeping the blog running. Does he think it helps his career, or what?

So long as they're not Atom feeds.
