For four years a young man I know was in prison for insulting the president of Egypt. I so hope that that president is booted out forever. I also hope that this expression of pent up anger, frustration, and energy after years of tyranny is not hijacked by other tyrants, of whatever sort. This is a time for Egyptian liberty and dignity, for Arab liberalism, for an order of equal justice and equal rights, of peace and prosperity, if ever there were one.
