Free Mojtaba and Arash

From Andy to the BBC, to Google to find the site of course, then to various other sites (news and bloggers; CNet, BoingBoing, GlobalVoicesOnline, WorldChanging, numerous others) who ran a bit on the Committee to Protect Bloggers request for action from the blogging community designating 22 February, 2005 as "Free Mojtaba and Arash Day" - 'twas an interesting journey. (CNet has the most detail about both the jailed bloggers, the exact incidents and the Committee To Protect Bloggers.)
