You Say You Want a Revolution? I've Got a Subway Line for You.

I am one of those lingering optimists who still thinks the Egyptian revolution has brought real, if still far from complete, change, but I know that there are many who feel the old regime has essentially ridden out the revolution and is returning to business as usual.

But not to worry: the Revolution is secure! The new, third line of the Cairo Metro, running from Midan Ataba to Midan Abbasiyya, will be officially named the Revolution line!

That's a relief.
