Mubarak ho, Egypt!

This needs a separate post of its own, in celebration. I'm glued to the images coming out of Tahrir Square following the announcement that Hosni Mubarak has stepped down.

No screengrab* is going to do justice to what's happening there. What a day!

(Yes, the army is still in charge, yes, this doesn't mean everything has changed; and yet it has.)


*Screengrabs - no; but photographs - yes. Hossam el-Hamalawy's record of Egypt over the last coupleof weeks, some images here

Truly. I regret acting upon the impulse now, but will let it stand. *sigh*
