Quote Of The Day

"Slowly [the authorities] will ask us not to breath, because they will say antirevolutionary air might get into your lungs."

This is a quote from one of our listeners with whom I have been exchanging e-mails for the past several months. She is a young Iranian woman in the capital.

Our e-mail exchange began after we lost two of our colleagues last September in a car accident. She sent her condolences and I thanked her. She then kept writing to find out about the situation of our third colleague, who was in a coma. I wrote back whenever I had some new information.

Today she sent me an e-mail saying that the authorities had contacted her and told her not to contact us because we're an" antirevolutionary radio."

She said she still trusts us as a reliable source of information.
