Hey Kids! While your Blog Hostess composes tomorrow’s post, check out this old 60 Minutes segment featuring Empress Farah of Iran whilst the Shah was still in power. It’s a fabulous way to spend 14-some-0dd minutes.
What did you think of the questions he asked Farah? Do you think some of them were inappropriate or simply a question they’d only ask in America? Is that what makes them ‘inappropriate?’ heee.
We were a bit shocked when they called her ‘a former chubby architectural student.’ Guess that’s the media version of a backhanded compliment. [We remember they said something in the same vein about Queen Fabiola…]
Overall, we found Farah to be incredibly personable, sincere and well-spoken. Her English isn’t flawless–like that’s a fair standard–but she has quite an impressive vocabulary. [Ugh. That’s so English teacher of us! At least we’re not correcting the characters’ grammar on a TV show. Your Blog Hostess does that a ton.] The Shahbanu must have been terribly astute.
What do you think of Farah and how she expresses herself? Do you think 60 Minutes gave an impartial view?
