As always, a FReep mail will get you on or off this Houston topics ping list.
We need to remember that thousands of Iranian people held candle light vigils in support and sympathy for the US after 9-11, while many in the rest of the Middle East danced on the street.
Following the terrorist attacks on New York City, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania, many in Iran showed their support for the victims with vigils and prayers. Thousands attend candlelight vigil in Tehran.
Is that accurate? The 2300 block of what street? Also, I can't locate "St. Phillip" or "Westernet" streets on the online maps. Should this be 2300 Post Oak (or some other north-south running street) between San Felipe (pronounced feh-lee-pay) and Westheimer?
