this north africa thing, pretty serious

Mubarak stepped down right as we were getting out of our last day of class last Friday. I had a couple Libyan classmates who were very excited about this because of what it might mean for Libya and Gaddafi. Right now, that struggle isn't going so well in Libya, but it's a start. Algeria, same thing. Maybe there will be no popular revolution now, but this is a big deal for the region and the people.

Forgot to mention. It was from Victor Hugo's Les Miserables - great book and great Musical.
