Jon Bon Jovi: Stand By Iranian People

Vodpod videos no longer available.

From the JawaReport, via Momma comment on Ace HA:

On June 24, Iranian Superstar Andy Madadian went into an LA recording studio with Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and American record producers Don Was and John Shanks to record a musical message of worldwide solidarity with the people of Iran. This version of the old Ben E. King classic is not for sale – it was not meant to be on the Billboard charts or even manufactured as a CD…..it’s intended to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people…to give voice to the sentiment that all people of the world stand together….the handwritten Farsi sign in the video translates to “we are one”. If you know someone in Iran – or someone who knows someone in Iran – please share this link

Update: Ruling 9-0 in effect?..Poll 2/3 Americans agree white firefighters were discriminated against… SCOTUS rules against New Haven, reverses Sotomayor!!!!SCOTUS watch: Ricci firefighter decision expected shortly…

Another update, from Ace:

Ed Whelan at Bench Memos argues the decision is actually 9-zip against Sotomayor — because even Justice Ginsburg says (though only in a footnote) that the appellate court should have remanded the case back to the district court, not summarily affirmed the lower decision.

Another update, go read Gabriel Malor at Ace HQ for the legal reading of the ruling

Update: Madoff gets 150 years….Madoff Sentencing: 12 years or 150….

Update: Judge Chin says symbolism important in the sentence, that Madoff’s actions were evil, he gives Madoff 150 years…good,  white collar crime should not be a vacation in club fed…

One hour to the sentencing. ..

CNBC on background:

…A U.S. judge is expected to sentence Madoff, 71, to an effective life term in prison during an emotional court hearing starting at 10 a.m. EDT in which some of his defrauded investors will describe the shock of losing their life savings. The swindler, who pleaded guilty to a slew of crimes in the same Manhattan federal court in March, will “speak to the shame he has felt and to the pain he has caused,” said his lawyer, Ira Lee Sorkin, who has suggested a 12-year prison sentence.

“Given the enormous amount of funds he has stolen and the number of victims, the sentence is going to be very, very high,” said Paul Radvany, a law professor at Fordham University in New York and a former federal prosecutor. The 100 or so letters sent to the judge from customers and what 10 will say at the hearing could have “a great impact” at the sentencing, Radvany said.
