A fellow I've followed for about 8 years now, the Egyptian Sandmonkey has posted this extremely moving piece
about the situation in Cairo. It is a must read cry to duty and a warning to all those of us who wish to live out from under the thumb of tyranny. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.
Update: Some a-hole authoritarian has shut down Sandmonkey's site. Until it comes back up, here's the Google Cache of his very fine prose.
SM was arrested and beaten after writing this, trying to take medical supplies to his people.
Re:Update: SM has gotten home and seems to be well, hopefully he's resting now. More details on his twitter account.
The pigs stole his phone... No offense to actual porcine.
