Egypt is not 'freshly democratized' - it is merely de-dictatored. There's a long way to go yet, and I hope it goes well, because there's a hell of a lot of ways it could fail to work out... which would be a great loss for the Egyptian people.

At this point, I also like to acknowledge Mohamed Bouazizi - the Tunisian streetside fruit seller who inspired all the recent democratic uprisings in the Middle East when he set himself on fire when police closed down his only way to earn a living because he didn't have a permit.
