Ready to run

This is just an anecdote, but it's of interest if true: Iranian officials are preparing to flee the country if the theocracy collapses.

Fascinating. A similiar phenomena occured amongst the Chinese ruling class during their democracy demonstrations. There are many examples of such families taking one or more of their children and sending them abroad to live, as sort of an immigration anchor, should the whole family have had to escape a revolution. I worked with two such "anchors" myself.
