More Mubarak Speculation

The Arabist picks up on Zeinobia's picture evidence I noted last night, and offers more speculation of his own.Husni Mubarak may be in perfect health, though the evidence looks contrary, but he's still 82 and has no designated successor. For years Egyptians kept reassuring me that the system would work and that foreigners speculated too much about the succession. But now they seem focused on it themselves.
