I'm not sure what to think
President Khatami of Iran was hospitalized for "severe back pain" right before an emergency Cabinet meeting dealing with the Guardian Council's control over Parliamentary candidates.

At first my first impression was, "Yeah. Back pain. Sure. Probably caused by the Guardian Council's hired thugs." But then I thought better of it and called my father, a chiropractor. So apparently it's quite plausible that President Khatami could be suffering really debilitating back pain--think of President Kennedy.
