I just watched - like probably every politically interested and freedom-loving person around the world - Mubarak's much anticipated speech. In Twitter speak, it's Listen, it's not you, it's me. No, really. It's all about me. That is so Erich Honecker that it is not even funny anymore.
I hope for the people in Egypt. I wish I could pray for them. I hope that they will be safe. I hope that they will not be goaded into becoming violent. They are better. They deserve better.
