There are 24 million people, give or take, living in Southern California. It is hard to get noticed. That’s why so many young and wish-they-were-young males in So Cal roar around in muffler-challenged cars and astride eardrum-splitting motorcycles. From Santa Barbara to San Diego the sound when a light turns green can be deafening from all the alpha male wannabes hoping someone, anyone, will notice they are alive, even if they are living what Henry David Thoreau called lives of quiet desperation. In world politics, Iran is a lot like the anonymous males of Southern California. Iran’s leaders crave attention.
