Dear Editor,

Democracy is a tough thing to hold on to. Iran is the best current example of what can happen. There is no middle class their only rich and working class people. The “Supreme Ruler” can order politicians, reporters or protesters imprisoned or shot at a moments notice. An unbelievable thought for anyone who lived in that country before 1979, the year the Shaw of Iran was toppled.
