Omar Sharif on Egypt

H owdy everyone.  I found this on bbcnews.com and I thought it was very interesting.  Omar Sharif gives a fairly level-headed assessment of what’s going on in Egypt, and it shows how attractive a panorama of Egypt can be if you have the money to buy a place near the Nile.  I was planning a trip to Egypt…probably going somewhere else now.

He’s also still got that amazing voice.  Every time he talks I feel like I should leave a few hundred bucks on his nightstand. 

I find it amazing watching an entire country semi-peacefully protesting for democratic rights.  It’s also very satisfying that our country is keeping itself by-and-large out of this one as well, as in the past we’ve supported democracy only as far as we trusted the citizens to vote for who we wanted in power.
