The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

And a Happy Nuclear Day to you too

It looks like today is Nuclear Day over in Iran today, complete with celebratory "Death to America" protests and everything. I'll be following the day's events as best as I can, so be sure to check back here for more Nuclear Day fun throughout the day!

... and my policy, too, is clear: Poorly translated foreign protest signs = FRONT PAGE COVERAGE.

I'll be keeping photographs on the extended version of this article, for your entertainment. Feel free to peruse them while I hop on down to Hallmark to shop for my National Day of the Nuclear Technology Day cards!

As usual, Gateway Pundit is covering these festivities, too. Hot Air is reporting that 3,000 centrifuges will be installed for uranium enrichment—I find this highly suspect, considering Iran's recent troubles with their supplier, though it's definitely not outside the realm of possibility that such an announcement would be made for (shock!) propaganda purposes.

As usual, I've got a roundup of today's festivities in the extended article, so be sure to keep reading for more fun and excitement!

They'd better be careful with that pink sign... It'd be very fashionable around certain parts of San Francisco!
