Damn Dogs

Apparently dogs are anathema in the new Iran.

"On the October 13, one of "Supreme Leader" Ali Khamenei's followers demanded that all dogs and their owners be arrested. This follows a June decree banning the sale of dogs, along with public dog walking, which was branded an immoral act and an offense to the sensitivities of all good Muslims. Makes one suspect that the mullahs' close relationship with the People's Republic of China has had a dramatic effect on Iranian cuisine, and the leaders are rounding up the dogs for the next banquet?"

When the Puritan impulse is set free, there's no telling where it will end up.
