The Egyptian Revolution, seen from Commencement Bay

If you are looking for stories and links this morning, try Adam Cathcart‘s post On the Events in Egypt first. There’s a good collection of links, including one to a French source (which seems to be sort of becoming for a story like this one, of course), it contains some observations about Chinese coverage on the topic, without drawing conclusions which would appear to be somewhat far-fetched, and all this is tied together by a Tacoma sunrise, near the waters called Commencement Bay.

And to read some coverage and opinion from the new land of hope and glory itself, you might try Al-Ahram, which was, over the past decades, usually referred to as semi-official in our press reviews. You might start with Hani Shukrallah‘s to-do list, which may, of course, only be one list out of many.
