This whole Egypt thing is really sad — I find it hard to break away from the coverage (Al Jazeera live here). I lived in Amman Jordan for about a year and also worked a bit in Cairo, a beautiful city now in ruins. The footage of people getting run over by cars, journalists getting attacked (don’t mess with Christian Amanpour, Anderson Cooper, Hala Gorani!), is just plain crazy and surreal. I hope the people’s voice is heard and that a stable, democratic government emerges.
On the somewhat more positive side of things, The Guardian has a nice photo collage of innovative helmet designs that are emerging among the protesters. Click here to see other, innovative helmet variants.
