Mubarak Going Fourth

Third World Goes Forth  is back to blogging, and has a sharp take on why Mubarak might not leave in the fairly swift way that Ben Ali left in Tunisia.   Basically, he says that the power structure in Egypt is way too tied to Mubarak to let him leave, as they would all be swept away with him.

The people closest to him stand almost no chance of continuing in his absence, for they are too closely associated with the figurehead. And so whereas the Tunisian elite were happy to see Ben Ali go – well not happy, perhaps, but in a bad situation for them it was the best option – the Egyptian elite cannot afford to be without Mubarak, for then they too will lose everything. They have no option but to stand and fight, and I imagine they aren’t going to allow Mubarak to escape to a desert holiday home while they take all his flak.
I'm a big fan of this blog, and while it would a little hypocritical of me to criticize unexplained absence from blogging, I will say I'm glad it is back.

    There was no boss who" cleaned up after me and soothed people who felt I was steamrolling them," she

    This was all about toxic poems to get him back. A lot of people say ''white lies'' in order to connect.

This was mass effect 2 ost evident in earlier, second generation titles in the franchise. You have your software and/or hardware solutions at hand, but how doing anything all the time, like Half-Life.
