Egyptian Free Speech

Freedom of speech is not guaranteed in most countries.  Including Egypt.  The government seems to be cracking down on journalists, just ahead of the coming elections.  This is fairly typical of Egypt.  Hosni Mubarak is elderly and has some health issues, so the current thinking is that his son Gamal may be the new man in charge.  It reminds me of the Soviet Union.  Of course you have the right to vote in the elections!  But we decide who can run.
