Thanks for the link SM.
On a side not...although I tend to disagree with you...I have nothing but the utmost respect for you, your blog, and your persistence.
Somehow in a weird, twisted kind of a way, and through all the bigotry, and dogmatism u can find all over the egyptian blogsphere (i hate this term!) this blogging thing did actually give me a hope that some things can change...and that their are ppl who (not necessairly share my opinion) but share my hope that change can be affected
Thanx and keep up the good work.

Uh-oh. I gave you hope in the future? How did that happen? There goes my nefarious plots and plans. Damn it.

In all seriousness, you know I have nothing but respect for you too. I am also glad that you tend to disagree with me. As I said when I first started this blog, I want to challenge people's-especially egyptians- points of view and truisms. I know I am not always right, but it's fun being the devil's advocate, you know?

Plus, seriously, altough I have my differences with most of the egyptian blogsphere, we all agree on the basics and the headlines: We want a free and democratic egypt, where free epxression and civil liberties exist, and where the people have hope in the future. Let's get there first I always say, and then argue semantics. Or kill eachother. Whichever works best, you know?

Glad you are back though..
