Last week, the Oregonian ran a piece about Iranian cartoonist Mana Neyestani, who was awarded an
award for courage in editorial cartooning by Cartoonists Rights Network International at a ceremony held in
conjunction with the AAEC convention: http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/steve_duin/index.ssf/2010/06/mana_neyestani_honored_for_cou.html
