    It's exactly what I was thinking of. I just hope this elation evolves into a truly democratic nation...

    And let us not forget that this really began in Tunisia. I hope for democracy there as well.

    I think I will have to drink heavily this evening to celebrate Egypt's joy.

    Today is the first step in what will be a long, hard journey.

    I hope the best for the people of Egypt, and that they may have the freedom they so desire.
    It ain't far from it.

    Middle East channel Al Arabiya reports that the Higher Military Council, which has taken control from Hosni Mubarak, will fire Mubarak's Cabinet, suspend both houses of Parliament and rule with the head of the supreme constitutional court.

    For now. Wasn't a huge concern of many hardline conservatives that mayhem might descend on Egypt? Well, now it won't. See? You can even try being happy.

    I don't know about you, but my idea of a, "step toward democracy", isn't to void the constitution and disband the parliament.

    how good is that now voided constitution if it effectively prohibits democracy from emerging


    but tell us, what actions should have been implemented instead
