I think we can reasonably mark this as the official date of the demise of the Egyptian Revolution. It’s been in its death throes for some time, it’s over now. State-sanctioned protest against the state’s anti-protest laws, good grief.
It’s a good thing I’m not the kind of guy to say “I told you so.”
In Seattle there is/was a march against suicide. (I swear it!). Absurd as it is it has a better chance of achieving its objectives that the Egyptian march.
