Supporters of Iran's seemingly sputtered Green Revolution apparently attempted to get the ESB to show green lights this week while Ahmadinejad was in town for the UN meetings — and were refused. But the WSJ notes the building will be lit in green on Thursday anyway for something much more important: the "Wizard Of Oz's 70th Anniversary Emerald Gala."

If you noticed it was green two nights ago too, for Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan. Great. So it's green Sunday, and green Thursday, but dammit, better send in the lackeys to change it back to white (which they call "ESB lighting") for the three days in between. Glad to see they've got their priorites straight over there.
