Deja Vu

Once again Egypt is fraught with political unrest and protest.  And not I am further away from Egypt and people who know any thing about Egypt than I have every been in my life.  Thanks goodness for the internet.  In less than a week the elected president of just one year was ousted after widespread protest (the biggest of all recorded human history), and what has been characterized as a military coup.  My friends are safe, and most of them are pretty happy.  Morsi (the former president) was not doing the most democratically minded things, but I am kept up at night by the fact that he was democratically elected.  This article sums up my concerns much better than I can, and illustrates why I have yet to celebrate with the majority of my friends.  Keep Egypt in your thoughts.
