Check out the photos at that link—these are large protests. Google or Twitter will find more news from the Mid-East for you. Don’t count on a daily newspaper to keep track of it all or to comment on the effect on the USA of these popular revolts.

At this time, reports are that Egypt has no Internet or telephone service as the government cracks down, and possibly no electricity or water in places.
