Dear Cairo (and the rest of Masri)

Okay, so it's a little odd to address a country that currently doesn't have Internet access due to the orders from the non-dictator Mubarak, and even if it did, I doubt any would come rushing to my near stagnant blog... But still...
I am so very proud of the very brave souls who are willing to fight to break free from the oppression and despicable violence that has hung over all of their heads for far too long. Sandmonkey does a great job of recording some of the MANY atrocities of the Egyptian government/police against its own citizenry.

If a man truly cared for his country over his own selfish, egotistical, megalomaniac tendencies, he would step down the minute he heard his own people were knowingly risking their very lives to simply see him gone... Wouldn't he? But don't worry. He's not a dictator. He may be a fucking dick, but he's not a dictator. Maybe THAT's what Biden meant... Idiot.
Now I can only hope for a secular government to replace him, because... Well, let's be honest... Religious governments don't end up much better, do they? And for pity's sake don't... Go... Communist. Really. Orwell was a smart fellow and knew what he was talking about.
If the people vote for an Isalmic government, so be it, as I believe in the power of election and the will of the people... But seriously. It doesn't go well. Go secular.

We do so we count!!!
Let's hope this fool has stashed enough stuff away by now that he can quickly make an ignominous exit and let the people get on with it and rebuild their government.
