My thoughts are taken up with the plight of journalist Roxana Saberi, who has been imprisoned by Iran for “espionage.” Ms. Saberi was arrested on Jan. 31 and currently is serving a sentence of 8 years. Recently, she began a hunger strike. Ms. Saberi’s original trial was behind closed doors, and the charges against her are considered baseless. Hers is just one example of the danger that journalists face worldwide. Please visit www.freeroxana.net for more information and to learn how you can join the effort for her release.
