Celebration!

Today is a day to rejoice. In the most inspiring moment since the fall of the Berlin wall, Mubarak has stepped down and the Egyptian people are free. Hopefully this is only the beginning of a renewed human rights movement across the globe.

I'm going to get afternoon drunk because I'm so happy for the Egyptian people.

  3. I hope they're not "free" like the Iraqi people are "free". Transitioning from a dictator will not be easy. I'm praying for them.
