Hosni Farouq to Stay

Egypt's culture minister will stay in his position despite his resignation following criticism after a fire in a theatre. I am pleased. Not because I want to defend the government or am in a position to evaluate his 18 years as a minister. But because the reason for resigning was wrong. Listening to the population is one thing different from bowing to popular winds. When the president is re-instated later this month, he has the opportunity to choose a new government. There are a few people I would rather see go before this one.
