Egypt, Egypt, Egypt! As we all do our own work, face our own struggles, and celebrate our own joys in our own little corners of the world, we can not help but to turn our faces toward the bright light shining out of the heart of Egypt. Today, the President is stepping down. There is joy and celebration, and fear and concern. Authority has been handed over to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which includes Omar Suleiman, appointed thirteen days ago to the position of Vice President by Mubarak himself. What remains to be seen is what his involvement will be in the power transition. Seeing what we've seen so far, however, it seems the Egyptian people will not put up with any more shenanigans. Suleiman better watch himself!
