Dreaming of Genie

The Egyptian Standoff has become excruciating to behold, with the stubborn heel-dragging of the elite showing, not telling, what the demonstrators abhor - an utter disregard for democracy - even, more disturbing, an inability to see it when it is right there on the streets.  I fear that this will descend into terrible, before it gets to beautiful, as the Friday gatherings increase, and the army prepares to weigh in (again) with force.

Note - it is now 16:33, GMT, and Mubarak has stepped down!  A thrilling moment in history.

Lets hope it works.
