I hate absolutes, so I don't know if the guy that the people of Egypt are trying to install is going to be better than Mubarak and I find it hard to throw myself whole-heartedly into an uprising when people are looting and breaking out prisoners (not all of whom, I assume, were in prison for unjust political reasons). But, of course, we shouldn't let a few bad apples spoil the freedom-seeking bunch. So tonight I stand in solidarity with the people of Egypt, or, rather, I move in solidarity with them.
