Bye Bye, Mugamma

Did I not say before that certain elements of our government are very sensible and have good taste? Let me back up that claim with the news that the Kafkaesque Mugamma building on Tahrir Square is to be evacuated. If the monstrous concrete complex that is the worst of many eye sores on our most central square will actually be deleted as well, I wouldn't know. I assume so. Let's hope they don't decide to turn it into another shopping mall with 500 boutiques who offer the same LE 45 shoes in fake leather. Or even worse: a Soviet-style super mosque. Na, just blow it up. When it’s gone, people may even begin to realize that the government isn’t that powerful at all. Read the article.

Also: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Jalila, the new Arab super heroine, coursing across the sky, black hair flying, in her battle to right the wrongs and ensure that justice prevails in the Middle East.
