egypt on edge, women at risk

watching cnn‘s coverage of giant protests in egypt, take two, i was reminded of edsa dos, of course, and that the foreign press (and erap, too) called it “mob rule” back in 2001.  no such words for the egypt action now, how kind.  how careful?  dealing with a different culture there, and none brings it home more clearly than this story:  Gang rape, the dark side of Egypt’s protests by Nina Burleigh, Special to CNN.  counting my blessings now.

    We taught the world people power and eastern europe was liberated. And then we bastardized people power and the arab spring happened. I don’t know what the moral of the story is :-)
