Pessimism About Egypt

What you have to say about the events there

A week ago, I asked how you felt about the events in Egypt, and I said that the commenter with the best response would receive an advanced reader’s copy of Sacred Trash, the Nextbook Press book about the Cairo Geniza forthcoming in April.

Can I be Solomonic about this and award two commenters? The two most insightful, I thought, were the first and the last, by “Dan Simon” and “Les Miller,” respectively. I’m sorry to say that both weren’t exactly optimistic, but so it goes. The winners can email me to collect their prizes. Have a look at what they said. And, if you feel up to it, tell me: Have the past week’s events (in Libya, for example) changed your minds?
