Egyptian Protests

The tumult in Tunisia seems to be inspiring the Egyptians.  Several of them have tried lighting themselves on fire, with at least one of them dying.  Activists want January 25th to be a day of protest, although Mubarak supporters are now calling for it to be a day of support for Mubarak.

It will be interesting to see if this goes anywhere.  Surely if Tunisia can kick out a president, so can Egypt?  Otherwise I don't see Mubarak leaving until he dies of old age.  See more by Middle East bloggers.
