I don't know how you picture Iran but it's not one of those places
where women are going around fully covered in veils all the time.

dredged up at random)

Dunno what bending of the truth you're talking about. I wasn't lying
about having been there (Tehran), and to Afghanistan and Russia.

Plus I am a member of the Python Software Foundation in good standing.
They see my memos / posts about ir.pycon plans.

Anyway, we have a large Iranian community right here in Portland with
a festival and everything.

Portland's Iranian festival)

Scandanavians also swarm here in the Pacific Northwest. Me one of them.

Grandma Esther was a daughter of first Swedish immigrants to Mercer
Island in the middle of Lake Union near Seattle.

Her dad built and ran the first gas station there.


PS: I had some additional responses to Paul re Swedish etc. which I
archived to another list FYI.
