Iranian opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi on Saturday accused the government of wasting public resources in a massive show of force against the opposition this month, calling the country's hard-line leadership a "dictatorship and distortion of the Islamic Revolution." But in his first public comments since protests failed to disrupt the Feb. 11 anniversary celebration of the 1979 revolution, Mousavi offered few specifics on what the so-called green movement should do next. For now, Mousavi said he and fellow opposition figure Mehdi Karroubi would press for permission to hold their own rally and reach out to more Iranians.

Very early on, when you start suspecting where "Iron Eagle" (citywide) is heading, you wonder whether it will dare to plunge into all-out ludicrousness. It does, and in doing so achieves a kind of perfection of awfulness that only earnest effort can produce. As a result, "Iron Eagle" has an unintended hilarity that builds and builds. But don't take this as one of those so-bad-it's-good endorsements: The film is a total waste of time.

At Pita Pita, the waitress starts bringing Lebanese appetizers to the table even before she takes your order. Here come green olives, small yellow peppers, strips of purple pickled turnips and two kinds of pita bread--fresh and toasted--to plunge into a silvery chalice of spicy red sauce. The sauce resembles a North African harissa chile dip mixed with a healthy dollop of sweet barbecue sauce.
