    Kristof really has been doing a wonderful job of reporting from Cairo, though. If you “like” him on Facebook, you get consistent updates from him (and notifications of new blog posts).

    Fancy that, someone dying for their country, in their country, in service to their community and without oppressing anyone else. Its almost like someones been lying to us all these years about what patriotism means and how Those People™ think…

    Today in amazing journalism… Anderson Cooper just did a beautiful photo montage in which he kept repeating, “Fear has been defeated. There’s no turning back.” Maybe it’s just because I don’t usually watch TV news, but wow… Anderson has been amazing in Egypt. And there was quite a lot of artistry in what I just watched him do… Wish the video was already up online.

    “Mr. Mubarak has disgraced the twilight of his presidency”
    It is not clear to me how you can possible disgrace a ‘presidency’ which has consisted of 30 years’ dictatorship any further. It was disgraceful from the beginning.
