Happy Birthday, Marjane Satrapi

and let it be known

When I was in college, I had the good fortune to be attending a university that would do things like add Marjane Satrapi to the list of convocation speakers for the semester. So I additionally had the delight of sitting down in a packed hall, listening to Ms. Satrapi apologize for her English, and then proceed to speak incredibly eloquently on the subjects of Iranian politics, morality, women’s rights, and the legitimacy of comics as a medium. Happy Birthday, Ms. Satrapi, creator of PersepolisEmbroideries, and Chicken With Plums, and many happy returns.
