A word about #Egypt

Right as I finally started digging into the new biography of Cleopatra the Aged P got me for Christmas, the stories of unrest in Tunisia and Egypt started to break.

I’m no expert, have no opinions except I wish whatever’s happening could happen without violence, but here’s what I’m reading.
