Back on Monday; More Then

I'll be back from vacation Monday and back to normal blogging then. There's much I haven't commented on: Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, growing death tolls in Iraq, clashes in Tunisia. And of course a tense situation in Egypt. Today's Friday demonstrations seem to have been more tranquil than last week's, despite the Interior Ministry's threats to clear the streets. So far Sarah Carr's fears of a Tiananmen Square scenario has not happened, but it's by no means out of the question. Hope for the best and I'll see you Monday.
