Your Turn: Putting the Uprising in Focus

Economist Iran Rises Up.jpg

With the backlash in Iran one week old (curious there isn't a common name for it yet), I'm both looking for that iconic/chyrystallizing image (which I don't think has emerged yet) and I'm curious how the print media will start to put it "in a frame."

Specifically, I'm wondering how you read this (which just came out today), and how well or poorly it does the job?
