It was nice that the Empire State Building Co. turned its green lights on the skyscraper five days ago, the day Iranians in New York were demonstrating for a free Iran.
The company said the green was for the 70th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz,” but the Iranian democrats appreciated the nod to their freedom movement, which has adopted green as its symbol.
So the Iranians rallied joyously under New York’s tallest building aglow in liberator green.
Everything changes tomorrow. The Empire State Building Co. has decided to salute the 60th anniversary of the bloodiest dictatorship in world history by bathing the building in red and yellow. I wish I were kidding.
The yellow is for the the stars on the Communist Chinese flag. The red, I guess, is for all that blood.
