'Iran Declares Ban on Western Music'


Above, the headline of today's breaking news.

Who knew that the censors in Iran paid such close attention to bookofjoe?

I mean, it was only yesterday that I reported on the new Harrisonburg High School ban on grinding


at school dances.

Clearly, Iran knows a good thing when it sees one.

What do they say... "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," isn't that how it goes?

Though I'm not so sure that if I were Harrisonburg High School Principal Irene Reynolds, I'd want to have President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran using me as his role model.

But here's the thing that puzzles me: today's news story notes that the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran outlawed popular music.

So if it's already a fait accompli, why bother to do it again?

Well, for one thing the new edict prohibits the playing of classical music on Iranian radio and television.


Roll over, Beethoven.
