Crackdown in Egypt

I posted this during the Iranian suppression of anti-government demonstrations in 2009.

“The first thought that comes to mind is a line from ‘I, Claudius’ where a Roman Senator responds to the tyranny of the Praetorian Guard with:  ‘I never fully realized how a small mind, allied to unlimited ambition and without scruple, can destroy a nation full of clever men.'”

Sadly, sometimes it’s still true.

UPDATE:  Good thing Joe Biden told us Mubarak is not a dictator.  I’m so relieved.
