CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN….Via Andrew Sullivan, I see that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has not been caught up in Obama fever:

The vituperative Iranian president, delivering his first public address since President Barack Obama’s inauguration last week and Obama’s own overture to the Muslim world this week, suggested today that the “change” which Obama promised in his campaign means that the new American leader must apologize for U.S. “crimes” against Iran, including American support for the 1953 coup in Tehran and the backing of Iraq during the war between Iraq and Iran.

So, um, I guess this means Obama won’t be making that big speech of his from Tehran, like I wanted. Cairo, anybody?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
