I ran into this article from the Atlantic while pretending that I was going to get out of bed.

On Thursday, Tunisian courts will hand down a verdict in the public prosecution of Nabil Karoui, chief of popular Tunisian broadcaster Nessma TV, for airing Satrapi’s film. The verdict will say a lot about the future of freedom of expression in the very country whose citizens kicked off the Arab Spring a year and a half ago.

It’s interesting that a movie that had already played in theatres is now considered to be “dangerous” and it points to how our climate has changed. I may rewatch Persepolis tonight…
