IRAN's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ruled out freezing sensitive nuclear work in the country for a long time and said sanctions imposed on it should be lifted as soon it reaches a final deal with major powers, state TV reported. Also, the deal would be unlikely to improve the world’s ability to react to a sudden effort by Iran to build a bomb.  So maybe not surprising that five former members of President Obama's inner circle of Iran advisers have written an open letter expressing concern that a pending accord to stem Iran's nuclear program "may fall short of meeting the administration's own standard of a ‘good' agreement" and laying out a series of minimum requirements that Iran must agree to in coming days for them to support a final deal.

Dick Van Patten & Don Featherstone, RIP   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

TUESDAY was a verrry slow news day...for ths ort of items typically posted here anyway.  But there are these notable passages:

DICK VAN PATTEN, who played the paterfamilias on the 1980s TV dramedy Eight Is Enough, died on Tuesday morning. He was 86.  I can't say I was a fan of the show, but he worked a lot in the late 70s and early 80s--and in that pre-cable, pre-internet era, if you worked regularly in movies and TV, you were a much bigger celeb than you would be nowadays.  

DON FEATHERSTONE, a classically trained painter, a talented sculptor and artist who became famous for creating the pink plastic lawn flamingo — the ultimate piece of American suburban kitsch, has passed away at 79.

See y'all tomorrow!
